Kentucky Craft Distillery Bluegrass Distillers had a busy year, relocating their production, operations, and tasting room to Midway, Kentucky.
And in that time, demand grew for their core line of products. Now, they recently released a new line of whiskeys under a new brand and label, Midway Distilling Co.
Bluegrass Distillers co-owner Ben Franzini said in a prepared statement, “We are so excited to introduce Midway Distilling Co. to complement our core Bluegrass Distillers line of premium Kentucky bourbons. … These experimental rye whiskeys, they are complex and delicious. This new brand allowed us to explore new and exciting flavor profiles and tell stories of the rich history of Bluegrass Distillers’ new home, Midway, Kentucky.”
The original Midway Distilling Company was founded prior to Prohibition in 1916 and was sold as medicinal whiskey until 1924, when the entire plant and remaining inventory were destroyed by fire.
Midway Distilling Company operated on the Northeast corner of Dudley & Gratz Streets in Midway, Kentucky, moving into the space previously occupied by the Belle of Anderson Distillery.
The first batch of the new Midway Distilling Company products include rye whiskeys with secondary finishes in rum barrels, Sauternes barrels, Vermouth barrels, toasted French oak, and re-charred oak.
The new rye whiskeys are hitting stores shelves this month. You can find out more about the new products and about Midway Distilling at www.midwaydistilling.com.
