B.R. Distilling Company, out of Memphis, Tennessee, recently introduced a newly-opened, 550-square-foot tasting room where visitors can sample the latest Blue Note Bourbon offerings as well as take a tour of the facility.
In a statement, B.R. Distilling, among the oldest licensed distilleries in Memphis, explained that tours and tastings will offer visitors an up-close experience with the Blue Note brand and the three bourbons: Blue Note Juke Joint, Blue Note Crossroads, and Blue Note Uncut.
The Blue Note team will conduct the personal tours of the 27,000-square-foot production facility and they’ll be sharing their knowledge of the brand and the whiskey industry.
“We were looking to capture the feel of Blue Note Bourbon along with the essence of Memphis, all while providing an authentic visitor experience,” said President and COO Logan Welk, in the prepared statement. “As awareness of our brand has increased over the past few years, we viewed this opening as a beneficial way for our fans and customers to get to know more about us.”
B.R. Distilling (originally named Big River Distilling) was founded in 2013, and started life as a vodka distillery. It later shifted its focus to aged spirits. Welk explained that he personally designed and renovated the space with the assistance of local plumbers and electricians. The wooden interiors were constructed from recycled oak pallets that were used to store barrels.
