Hartfield and Co.
Rum, Bourbon, American Whiskey, White Whiskey
Hartfield & Co., formerly The Gentleman, is a small batch distillery located in Paris, KY. We are the first licensed distillery in bourbon county since prohibition forced the closure of the distilling industry in 1919. It’s odd to think that out of all the bourbon currently produced in the world, none of it has been produced in bourbon county – until now.
In a very large sense, we have the world it’s first bourbon, or any spirit for that matter, from bourbon county, Kentucky in almost a century. Ninety five years without a distillery inside of bourbon county has come to an end with the founding of Hartfield & Co.
Our intention is to be a craft distillery in every sense. We have started small and intend to stay that way with a focus on the “craft” of being a craft distillery. Our products will be made in small batches with a focus on the process of creating truly great spirits and sourcing the best local ingredients. It is our intention that most of the grain we use will come from bourbon county or the surrounding counties, and our spent grain will go back to local farms to complete the cycle.
