When you live in the one small corner of the world God graciously anointed to be bourbon country, life revolves around it. People prioritize socializing and schedule events around their next sip. It is what we call being “bourbon-centric.”
Augusta Distillery was created to extend this elevated existence to all who are willing to downshift, kickback and linger a little longer.
IF I CANNOT DRINK BOURBON AND SMOKE CIGARS IN HEAVEN, THEN I SHALL NOT GO.”

BOURBON FLOWS AGAIN
Before distilleries began springing up in central Kentucky, bourbon whisky flowed right here in the original Bourbon County. Corn-based distillations from hilltop stills found their way down to the banks of Augusta in old oaken barrels, where they were loaded on flat bottom boats and distributed downstream to the west and south. This journey would not only transport the whisky, but also transform it into what we know today as bourbon.
The precise mash recipe would be canonized, and the Ohio River would become the vehicle to advance the popularity of this uniquely Kentucky spirit. Today, the waterfront remains a defining attribute of our charming river town as the Augusta Distillery proudly occupies one of the historical first stops on the original Bourbon Trail. With casual ease, authenticity, and a humble sophistication, our bourbons capture our prosperous past and enterprising future with products designed to help unwind, revel, and linger just a little while longer.
The Heart of it all
Bourbon-Centric also refers to our location. Perched on a pristine stretch of the Ohio River,
Augusta is within a stone’s throw of five major markets. With easy access from two major highways
and a close proximity to the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky Airport,
finding your way here is far from difficult.
