Extracted from Boundary Oak Distillery
Boundary Oak Distillery is nestled in the knobs of central Kentucky. With its beautiful woods, waterfall and natural limestone spring the land was clearly meant to be home to one of Kentucky’s great bourbon distilleries.
However, because of prohibition bourbon enthusiasts have been robbed of this asset for nearly a century. In fact, the land has most recently been known as a manufacturing plant that closed in 2009.
IMG_4178 – Version 2Fortunate for us, Master Distiller Brent Goodin had a vision for something more. You see, the Goodin Family has been a part of Kentucky for over 200 years. Brent’s ancestor Samuel Goodin established Goodin Fort at the site of old Boston, which ultimately became Bardstown, the Bourbon Capital of the World ™. Add to this Brent’s grandmother and uncle’s years of hard work in the bourbon industry and it’s no wonder how Brent could see a distillery on this land.
After months of research, paperwork, preparation and an investment of nearly 1 million dollars, Boundary Oak Distillery received its licensure. On October 18, 2013, the first legal production of liquor in Hardin County, Kentucky since prohibition began. Our Kentucky Moonshine 101 proof, Kentucky Moonshine 121 proof and Kentucky Amber are now available at select retailers.
Boundary Oak Distillery is located on Boundary Oak Drive in Radcliff, Kentucky. Today, work continues to retool, and repurpose this site for what it was always intended…the distilling and aging of America’s native spirit.
Tastings and tours run Tuesday-Saturday 12-6 pm. The distillery is closed Sundays and Mondays.
