The James E. Pepper Distilling Company Warehouse


Distillery Rickhouse


Midway, KY



In a continued great partnership, The James E. Pepper Distilling Company Warehouse has been completed in Midway, KY, allowing one of the oldest DSP numbers in the state to expand production to meet rising demand. The facility is an 18,000 square foot palletized barrel warehouse with forklift charging and barrel dumping areas. The site will also allow for future construction as demand grows.


Set on top of a hill overlooking the rolling Bluegrass landscape of Central Kentucky, the Warehouse takes cues from the repeating patterns and forms of regional vernacular architecture with its gable roof, ridge vents and louvers. A front porch is oriented to enjoy the canopy of a bur oak tree thought to be 250 years old or more; a key feature of the Bluegrass region. Exterior lighting is dark sky rated to prevent light pollution in the bucolic setting, and exterior colors have been matched to the Distillery in Lexington for a subtle aesthetic continuity.
