The Pepper Distillery in Lexington, KY was initially built in 1880 by Colonel James E. Pepper. At the time, it was said to be the largest and most technologically advanced distillery in the nation. It was there that Col. Pepper produced his famous high-grade whiskey, of which he was a flamboyant promoter. Indeed, legend has it that the Old Fashioned cocktail was invented in his honor, which he subsequently introduced to the world during his frequent stays in New York City. The distillery operated until 1967, when both it and the brand were abandoned for over 50 years. After a decade of research and renovation, the brand was relaunched and the distillery was rebuilt - filling it first barrel in 2017.
The barrels selected for the Old Pepper label were carefully chosen from the distillery's finest stocks and hand bottled at the historic distillery in Kentucky. Some barrels were also distilled by partner distilleries who initially helped the James Pepper company relaunch the brand through collaborative distilling.
