OUR STORY

A new distillery built on the timeless and true.

Luxco’s drive to innovate has quickly allowed us to become one of the top USA-based independent producers of alcohol beverage products as we produce and market a wide array of products across all categories.

In 2015, as our whiskey brands continued to grow and expand, we realized we were going to have to build our own site to service our needs going forward. As such, we began the hunt for our very own distillery site. Kentucky, with its rich southern culture, abundant natural resources of both high-quality grains and fine limestone filtered water, was the natural fit. Building our own distillery represents a natural evolution for Luxco.

We have been steeped in the bourbon business for over forty years, having others distill for us to service our needs. We learned from them and now understand that it is our time to do it ourselves in order to fill the growing demand for our products.

With over 18,000 square feet, 6 barrel warehouses at capacity and a 43-foot custom copper still, Lux Row Distillers is capable of producing 3 million gallons of spirit per year. When fully complete we will have the composite to process 50 thousand barrels of whiskey annually.

With this location producing Rebel Yell, Ezra Brooks, David Nicholson and Blood Oath, Lux Row Distillers is a must see on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. It is our pleasure to welcome you to Lux Row Distillers…

Real Roots, Real Family, Real Products.

TIMELINE

Lux Row Distillers and Our Brands

OUR HEAD DISTILLER

John Rempe

At Lux Row Distillers, we have a passion for craft. We’re a blend of different personalities bound together by a love of bourbon. When trying to describe John E. Rempe’s relationship with bourbon, the word “passion” doesn’t come close.

John, a certified food scientist with a bachelor’s degree in biology from St. Louis University and over 20 years of experience in distillation of spirits, has been at the forefront of crafting world-class bourbons in the company’s award-winning portfolio. He has created brands like David Nicholson Reserve, Rebel Yell 10-year, and the ultra-premium Blood Oath series, and has also been heavily involved in the oversight of Luxco’s award-winning bourbon portfolio, which includes the Rebel Yell, Ezra Brooks, David Nicholson and Blood Oath bourbon families.

He may have a favorite bourbon in the distillery’s lineup, but that’s a secret he’ll never tell.
