Limestone Branch Distillery opens to public


Limestone Branch Distillery in Lebanon, Kentucky, is to open its doors to the public and invite them in for guided tours of the facility.

The craft distillery was set up last year by brothers Steve and Paul Beam, two members of Jim Beam’s extended whisky making family and is just down the road from bourbon goliath Maker’s Mark.

Limestone Branch runs a single 150 gallon copper potstill which is used to produce small, one-barrel batches. Products so far include Moon*Shine and Sugar*Shine, an Appalachian style moonshine made from 50% white corn and 50% sugar cane.

Distiller Steve Beam said in a press release: “We are so excited to join the ranks of Kentucky’s fine distilleries. We grew up hearing the stories about out grandfather’s exploits in distilling and it is an honour to carry on the tradition. We are looking forward to showing visitors around Limestone Branch, sharing our production methods and giving them a little taste of the fruits of our labor.”

Distillery tours are offered seven days a week. Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. with tours leaving on the hour. Tours run from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. on Sundays. Visit for more information.
