Jeptha Creed Distillery




Shelbyville, KY



Located outside of Shelbyville, KY, this new rural distillery opened to the public in 2016. Joseph & Joseph + Bravura Architects designed the 15,500 square foot facility to include a full distillery from grain milling through bottling. The distillery production area is designed to include four 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.

Included in the master plan for the site are also five barrel warehouses, an amphitheater, and a separate larger event space.
