Fresh Bourbon Distilling Co. owner and founder Sean Edwards has been on a mission since he founded his operation in Kentucky in 2017, looking to establish a premier, African American owned bourbon brand in his hometown of Lexington. He is now one step closer to that dream as it was announced recently of plans to construct a new 34,000 square foot distillery there.
As it stands now plans call for Edwards to break ground on his new whiskey making facility later this year near Lexington’s Distillery District, which is currently home to two working bourbon distilleries, James E. Pepper and Barrel House. His distillery, once complete, will produce the company’s new line of bourbons and other whiskeys, as well as host tours and guided tastings. An event space is also said to be in the works.
