Louisville, KY is known for the Kentucky Derby and delicious whiskey… and just to the east is gorgeous Shelby County, a gem in the shadow of the well-known town. Shelby County is known for equestrian history, numerous horse farms, and the 300-acre home of Bulleit Bourbon.

But Bulleit isn’t the only bourbon in the neighborhood.

Jeptha Creed Distillery, the first distillery in Shelby County since Prohibition ended, is run by a dynamic mother-daughter team, Joyce and Autumn Nethery, and their extended family.

4 Ways to Enjoy Jeptha Creed

Tastings and Tours. During the Barrel Tasting, head through the farm to the barrel barn where you can taste right from the barrel in an intimate setting.

You can also enjoy the distillery tour with a sample of spirits, or just enjoy the free spirit tasting.

Mixology Class. Learn from the distillery’s cocktail mixologist how to use the Jeptha Creed delights in seasonal cocktails. You’ll make two cocktails and go home with a glass to remind you of your visit.

The Bar. Head to The Bar for craft cocktails, bourbon samples, bourbon slushies, plus beer, wine and mocktails.

Creed Cafe. Grab lunch, snacks, or small bites, including their signature pizza.
