Episode 3

Hear the Old Crow Steam Whistles Again!

A little different…a lot better.

A pot distilled, hand-crafted, single barrel, barrel strength bourbon that has no equal on the market

Our Distilled Spirits

From Old Crow to GCD

David Meier, the owner of Glenns Creek Distilling, has always had a love for where things are made, how they are made, and the level of craftsmanship that went into their making. This love of creation was one of the driving forces behind his career in manufacturing and his yearning to create something of his own.

He happened upon the Old Crow Distillery. Seeing the exorbitant level of craftsmanship that went into the old buildings and seeing the state that they were in after being abandoned for 30 years brought up a mix of sadness for the current state and intrigue for what it must have been like in its prime. David started to research the history of The Old Crow Distillery to get a better feel of what role the old distillery played in the bourbon industry and Kentucky. He recreated a new bourbon produced in the style of Dr. Crow; something that Dr. Crow would drink and approve of. The road ahead to restore and preserve these great buildings is a long one, but one that everybody at the distillery is willing to undertake.

Glenns Creek Distillery

“A Little Different, A Lot Better.” Bourbon without the BS.

As we get older, and Dave and John are older,  we recognize BS when we see it and we avoid products and services attempting to BS us.  Hopefully, we offer you our pot distilled Bourbon and you decide IF they are good. Seems to have worked for us so far. Come see, try our products and decide for yourself.
