Issued the 10th distillery license in KY, DSP-KY-10 opened it's doors as the Green River Distillery in 1885. Our storied distillery in Owensboro has been producing Bourbon and Rye for nearly 130 years. Today the distillery stands proud as the westernmost location on the famed Kentucky Bourbon trail.
Over the years, our distillery has been subject to numerous transformations and setbacks such as ownership changes, fire, prohibition, and bankruptcies. In 2014, the property was purchased and industry experts were brought in to resurrect the distillery back to and beyond its former glory. Through extensive renovation that perfectly melded the site’s historic and traditional components with the best and most efficient distilling equipment, the distillery is once again vibrant and producing some of the best Bourbon and Rye available today.
Today, we continue the tradition of producing fine Bourbon and Rye under the watch of third generation Master Distiller Jacob Call, using only locally sourced Kentucky grown corn and oak char barrels. What’s more, the natural limestone in the local water that adds minerals to promote fermentation, coupled with the dramatic extremes of Kentucky weather, complete the recipe for making so many of the best Bourbons and Ryes on the market. It is in fact true that the best Bourbon in world comes from Kentucky.
To say he was born with Whiskey in his veins may be a stretch, but distilling Bourbon has been in Jacob Call’s family for three generations. A seventh-generation Kentuckian (born and raised in Bardstown), Jacob graduated from Murray State University with a degree in business administration. He started his career in banking, rising in the ranks to Chief Operating Officer before the familial call of the spirits business became too strong.
His grandfather and father had spent many years working at Jim Beam (where his father was mentored by Booker Noe) and his father went on to become Master Distiller at Florida Caribbean Distillers, where Jacob joined the team in 2007. At Florida Distillers, Jacob held various senior management positions in purchasing, bulk sales, and distillery operations.
As Master Distiller, Jacob oversees all aspects of Whiskey production and warehousing for the facility.
