First of its kind

Wilderness Trail Distillery's first of its kind Kentucky rickhouse First craft distillery rickhouse built in Kentucky. Traditional design Rickhouse to store 2100 barrels over two floors of three tiers each, for as consistent of an aging environment as mother nature will allow.

The highly engineered design of the warehouse compliments the distillery's efforts of offering a single batch bourbon, a new term that means each batch of bourbon was cooked, fermented, distilled and barreled as one single batch destined to be bottled from that single barrel.
