Please note that our entrance is off of W. Germantown Road (Route 3056) and our exit is on W. 2nd Street (Route 8). An Old Pogue barrel head hanging from a white sign post may be seen at the entry to the property off of Germantown Road (Route 3056).
The Old Pogue Distillery is located at 716 W 2nd Street, Maysville, KY on the same grounds where the historic H.E. Pogue Distillery was located. We proudly produce small batch rye and bourbon whisky using the same ingredient combinations and methods found in the recipes of our forefathers. Our distillers, Paul Pogue and John Pogue, are fifth and sixth generation Pogues, respectively. The Old Pogue property includes the historic home of the Pogue family and an artisan distillery, complete with tasting room, grain holding, and barrel storage. The venue sits on the southern bluff of the Ohio River Valley with eastwardly views of the Simon Kenton Bridge and Ohio River.
We are a short drive from charming Maysville, KY, known as the “birthplace of bourbon.” Indeed, today we still enjoy this area’s unique supply of local grains and limestone-rich water that has served the family’s operations since the beginning of the original distillery in 1876. We invite you to schedule an appointment to tour the distillery and sample our spirits, as well as purchase spirits and merchandise.
