To our treasured supporters and friends,

We are beyond excited to share the news of the official release of the first Peerless Bourbon in over 100 years. The 2015 revival of Kentucky Peerless revealed Corky and Carson Taylor’s dedication to maintaining the integrity of Henry Kraver’s process of handcrafting great whiskey. Corky and Carson decided to patiently wait for Peerless Bourbon to age at the distillery at the hand of Caleb Kilburn, now Master Distiller at Peerless. Caleb implemented the use of sweet mash, low distillation proof, low barrel entry proof, and non-chill filtration to create a complex and distinct spirit worthy of the Peerless name.

After four years of patiently waiting for the maturation of Peerless Bourbon, the wait is coming to an end. Peerless Bourbon will be available in extremely limited quantities (without a prescription) at Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company on June 22, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be no distillery tours, but complimentary tastings of Peerless Kentucky Straight Rye and Bourbon will be offered every half hour from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on a first come, first served basis. The first 100 patrons to purchase a bottle will receive an exclusively labeled bottle numbered 1-100.

We look forward to sharing our Bourbon with you!
