The art of making fine bourbon first took place on the site of the Woodford Reserve Distillery, a National Historic Landmark, in 1812 by Elijah Pepper. One of KentuckyÕs oldest and smallest distilleries, the present day Woodford Reserve Distillery is built on history, sitting on KentuckyÕs oldest distilling site. Often cited as the birthplace of bourbon, it was here in 1838 that Dr James Crow perfected the ‘Sour Mash’ process that is still used in bourbon production today, adding to the distillery’s historical value. In fact, in 1995 the distillery was officially recognized by the US Government and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, culminating in its recognition as a National Historic Landmark in 2000.
