Our Spirits


Straight Bourbon Whiskey

The first thing you notice is the rich amber color, glowing soft as warm caramel drizzled on an autumn apple. The way bourbon used to look when distillers paid attention to their craft.

Next you’re met with a welcoming aroma, which our patrons have described as reminiscent of aged oak, vanilla, and caramel. Take your first sip and you’ll enjoy notes of sweet oak, vanilla, caramel and a hint of apricot. This is a rich, uncompromising flavor palette, no question.

The finish is unique and complex, ranging from vanilla to a hint of cinnamon and even subtle notes of rye bread. Different people find different things to love. Isn’t that the way it should be? We like to think that we’ve crafted Eighteen 33 to offer something to every bourbon lover.

Traditional Copper Distilled



Rich Alabaster Cream blended with Aged Bourbon

Back in the late 1800s, when Boone County was booming with distillers, blacksmiths, lumbermen and farmers, it took teamwork to meet the needs of the growing community. Men, women and children worked together to accomplish a long day’s work, with immense satisfaction found in the accomplishments. That’s how communities are built.

Lewis Loder’s tavern was such a place. Loder, a bookkeeper, ran the White Hall Tavern at Tanner and Front Streets in Petersburg, KY. He proudly built his community one glass at a time. One of his favorite treats was serving shots of bourbon over rich ice cream, and as the sun set on the Ohio River his hard-working patrons enjoyed a sweet reward for their honest day’s work.

We recall that moment with our Bourbon Cream blended with signature Boone County’s Eighteen 33 and rich, alabaster cream. Pour it over ice, ice cream, or in your coffee. Pour it and remember

Crafted in Small Batches


Best served chilled



White Whiskey

In 1785, the Bluegrass could be a wild and bloody place. The landscape was raw, the living thin, and conflict was inevitable. And when a God-fearing man named Tanner founded Petersburg, Kentucky smack atop a prehistoric graveyard of the Fort Ancient people, he had made a major mistake. A mistake he paid for with lives.

It started on a chilly October dawn, the white moon hanging in the sky like coyote eyes, when Tanner’s two eldest sons embarked in canoes on a hunting trip down the Ohio River. They were ambushed by natives at a point in the river called Split Rock, and for two days the men held their attackers at bay until the natives received reinforcements. Knowing his disadvantage, Ezra Tanner made a deal with the Chief to meet him in a tomahawk fight to the death, with the winner to be spared. After an hour, the young Tanner split the Indian’s skull wide open. Contest over. But the Indians reneged on the deal, and immediately attacked Tanner and his companions, killing the boys deader than a stone.

These early Americans fought for their place in history, and their influence runs as clear as the whiskey in this vessel. Like the alabaster moon the embers of their souls live on, well beyond the battle.

Our tasting room & artisan distillery.

Reminiscent of the days when bourbon was celebrated as the life-blood of the region, our new distillery is 5,000 square feet set on 2.5 acres. It includes a 500-gallon pot still, four fermenters and a small bottling line with a capacity of hundreds of barrels of small batch bourbon a year. Barrels will be stored on site, in a 3,000-square-foot warehouse behind the distillery. In every detail of our operation, we’ve respected our history while investing in our future. Our tag line, “Made by Ghosts®,” harkens to the early pioneers who crafted spirits in Boone County more than 100 years ago.
