From Nashville

For the past 200 hundred years or so, our distillery has been located at 3350 Burks Spring Rd. in Loretto, Ky., but for some reason the street name pops up in many GPS systems as "Burkes Spring" Rd. So, if you’re planning on finding us with the help of your trusty GPS, you might have to delete the e between the k and the s.

Also, if your GPS insists on trying to take you to our business office in Louisville, Ky., just ignore it and use the turn-by-turn directions to our distillery below!
