Calling all bourbon fanatics! It’s time to show the world what Owensboro, Kentucky is all about. The Green River Distilling Company is officially joining the Kentucky Bourbon Trail on Monday, June 4 as a Heritage member. Green River will be a part of the highest-ranking level in the organization alongside Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Michter’s, Evan Williams, Wild Turkey, Woodford Reserve, Angel’s Envy, Bulleit and Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company. A special ceremony will commemorate the milestone, including planting an American White Oak Tree to memorialize the achievement and a congratulatory bourbon toast.
Did you know 95% of all bourbon in the world is made right here in Kentucky? “The industry is in the middle of a $1.2 billion building boom, from innovative new tourism centers to expanded production facilities, all to meet the growing global thirst for Kentucky Bourbon,” The Lane Report stated in 2017. With over a million people traveling the Bourbon Trail every year, the addition of Green River Distilling Company is a game-changer for tourism in Owensboro.
