Jeptha Creed Distillery




Shelbyville, KY



Located outside of Shelbyville, KY, this new rural distillery opened to the public in 2016. Joseph & Joseph Architects designed the 15,500 sq. ft. facility to include a full distillery from grain milling through bottling. The distillery production area is designed to include 4 1000 gallon fermenters and a 12 inch column still and to allow for future growth and diversification of products. Also in the main building is a retail space, tasting room and event space. The stone base and wood siding design was intended to reflect the rural setting, tucked into a wooded area at the top of a hill.

Also included in the master plan for the site are 5 barrel warehouses, an amphitheater, and a separate larger event space.
