Old Pogue claims to be one of the oldest distilleries in Kentucky, with a history dating back to 1876.

Today it produces two whiskeys – Limestone Landing Single Malt Rye, an unaged whiskey with 53% abv, and Old Pogue Bourbon, a small batch, 45.5% abv whiskey that was once the flagship product of the original H.E. Pogue Distillery in 1876.

The Indian corn and limestone water inherent to the region is thought to give Old Pogue Bourbon a “mellow character and distinguished flavour”.
