Limestone Branch joins distillers group

Limestone Branch Distillery in Lebanon has joined the Kentucky Distillers' Association.

The small-batch craft distillery, which is producing whiskeys from heirloom white corn grown in Marion County, is the 10th KDA member and the fourth Kentucky Craft distillery.

Founded in 2011 by Steve and Paul Beam, Limestone Branch will offer T.J. Pottinger corn whiskey (a corn and malted barley blend) and T.J. Pottinger Sugar Shine (made from corn and sugar), with plans for artisan rum and vodka.

Craft distilleries maintain an inventory of less than 25,000 barrels of distilled beverage spirits, KDA president Eric Gregory said.

The liquor is available at the distillery gift shop, which opened Feb. 17.
