Kentucky Owl Announces New Planned Distillery

Kentucky Owl has announced a $150 million dollar plans for a 420 acre pyramid shaped distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky. Instead of the preferred pyramid builder Ramesses II, Kentucky Owl has hired Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban to design the distillery.

Per Kentucky Owl regarding the visitor experience:
"Kentucky Owl Park will be a collection of one-of-a-kind buildings that are rooted in industrial vernacular design with each building featuring a distinct structural form that incorporates visual elements of the local bourbon-making process. 
With plans for a vintage dinner train to stop on the property, Kentucky Owl Park will become a must-see destination, connecting to other distilleries along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and creating a tourist experience unlike any other"

In addition to the visitor center, the site will also include limestone water lakes that will be used as part of their production, rickhouses for aging, and a bottling center. Groundbreaking is expected in the spring of 2020. will have more updates as they become available.
