Daviess County Bourbon
Founded in 1874, Daviess County Distilling Company was one of the first bourbon distilleries of Kentucky, paving the way for more than a dozen other distilleries that opened in Daviess County pre-prohibition. Daviess County was not only a pioneer, but also one of the few distilleries from that era that prevailed through prohibition, surviving by selling “bonded medicinal whiskey.”
Lux Row Distillers relaunched Daviess County in 2020 under three different labels: Kentucky Straight Bourbon, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Cabernet Sauvignon Finish, and Kentucky Straight Bourbon French Oak Finish, releasing only 4,000 bottles of each. Daviess County does not make its mashbill public, however, their bourbons are unique in that they are a blend of both a straight wheated bourbon and a traditional straight rye bourbon.
