Green River boasts historic DSP-KY-10 title

Green River Distilling Company is one of the most historical landmarks on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Established in 1885, Green River holds the title of DSP-KY-10, meaning it is literally the 10th oldest registered distillery in the entire state of Kentucky.

That includes all the distilleries that have ever been registered in the state, including those which have come and gone over the years, smaller-scale distilleries and all the well-known brands that continue to thrive across the Bluegrass State.

Owensboro’s DSP-KY-10 went through fire, Prohibition, multiple owners, abandonment, and a long period of dormancy before being revitalized in 2014. Two years of renovation and modernization later, the distillery was back up and running, producing more than 90,000 barrels of bourbon and rye a year.

With that much history comes a lot of pride, which is why eighth-generation Master Distiller Jacob Call and his team have spent the last five-plus years creating a bourbon whiskey that supersedes even their own expectations.
