Crafted in the heart of Bourbon country.
Crafted in the heart of Bourbon country, in Owensboro Kentucky’s storied DSP-KY-10 distillery that dates to late the 1800’s, this fine whiskey was developed in collaboration with the farming families of the Kentucky Corn Growers Association. Yellow Banks is shining example of the qualities and conditions that prove Kentucky ideal for whiskey making. Made from 100% Kentucky Corn, the majority of which, is grown within 50 miles of our distillery.

Issued the 10th distillery license in KY DSP-KY-10 opened its doors as the Green River Distillery in 1885, Our storied distillery in Owensboro Kentucky has been producing bourbon and rye for nearly 130 years. Owensboro was originally founded in 1797 as Yellow Banks, as it sits along the glowing golden banks of the Ohio River.
Several storied Kentucky Bourbon brands have been distilled within our walls. Today the distillery stands proud as the westernmost location on the famed Kentucky Bourbon trail.
Over the years, the distillery has been subject to numerous transformations and setbacks such as ownership changes, fire, prohibition, and bankruptcies. After sitting vacant and in disrepair for nearly 25 years, 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 and add a soft, rich mouthfeel, coupled with the dramatic extremes of Kentucky weather that allow our whiskey to flow through the barrel char, 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.
