How Peerless Took the Path of Most Resistance to Their First Bourbon in a Century

The first Peerless Bourbon in a century is being released this weekend.

Caleb Kilburn has been waiting for this weekend since the day Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co. opened their doors. On Saturday, June 22nd, the distillery will release its first bourbon in 102 years.

Peerless, founded in 1889 by pharmacist Henry Kraver, was revived in 2014 by his great-great grandson Corky Taylor and Corky’s son Carson. They were one of the first distilleries to obtain an original distilled spirits plant number when reopening, operating under DSP KY-50.
