Spirits

The Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company also produces four whiskey spirits: Town Branch Bourbon, Town Branch Rye, Pearse Lyons Reserve (malt whiskey), and Bluegrass Sundown (a bourbon-infused coffee concentrate).

The distillery began making spirits in 2007, and began selling them in 2011 after waiting for four years of aging.

In 2015, the distillery released its first specialty spirit, a 6-year single barrel version of its Town Branch Bourbon.

Tours

With its inception, the Town Branch Distillery was added to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and began offering tours.[5][6][7] Visitors are able to view the alcohol production process and sample beer and spirits.
