Fresh Bourbon Distilling Co. proudly announces the upcoming development of the a new 34,000 square feet distillery in Lexington, KY and release of a new beverage alcohol spirits line, Fresh Spirits, marking multiple firsts for African Americans in the KY Bourbon industry.
Sean Edwards, Lexington native and African American entrepreneur, registered the company in 2017 and immediately began work on crafting unique Bourbons, whiskeys and other spirits as well as opening a distillery in his hometown.
Fresh Bourbon’s Master Distiller, who is the first Kentucky African American Master Distiller post slavery, developed the exclusive spirit recipes and is overseeing production.
Their products are mashed, fermented, distilled, matured and will ultimately be bottled entirely in Kentucky. The unique recipes are currently being produced under contract through Hartfield & Co. Distillery in Paris, KY. Fresh Spirits uses only the highest quality ingredients to produce ultra-premium beverages.
The company will secure a location near downtown Lexington’s Distillery District and will begin construction of the distillery later this year. In addition to being the primary production location, the distillery will offer tours and guided tastings plus include an event space.
Fresh Bourbon launches late 2020 which will be followed by the release of Fresh Whiskey, Fresh Gin, and Fresh Agave coinciding with the opening of the distillery. The Master Distiller’s identity is expected to be announced at product launch.
