LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A distilling company is re-opening in downtown Louisville. Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company is set to reopen at the corner of Tenth and Main Streets.
The new headquarters will include a copper still and its own bottling line. It will be open to the public and include a gift shop for products related to bourbon and moonshine.
"We've reached back through our generations to help us establish and grow a quality business for the future generations of our family," said Corky Taylor, who is reviving the business with his son Carson. The Taylor family is privately financing the company, which expects to create five to ten new jobs in its first year.
Peerless Distilling began doing business in Henderson, Kentucky in the late 1800's under the ownership of Corky Taylor's great-grandfather, Henry Kraver. It closed in the middle of the last century, and is scheduled to re-open in March of next year.
