DANVILLE, KY — In addition to drink and gift shop specials, Wilderness Trail Distillery has two exclusive offerings during its Dec. 1 and 2 Holiday Open House.
For its first annual holiday release, Wilderness Trail Distillery will offer a 375 ml bottle of single barrel, cask strength Harvest Rum. This 101-proof Harvest Rum will be available only in the gift shop.
The Open House also features a special drawing to participate in Bourbon Science, the craft distillery’s June 6 Bourbon Affair event. Everyone attending the Open House may register for the drawing for this Bourbon Affair event that concludes with bottling your own Bourbon in the barrelhouse. The ticket has a $150 value.
During the Open House, visitors will receive 20 percent off a gift shop purchase (excluding alcohol). The gift shop has several items that relatives and friends might enjoy, including hoodies, T-shirts, glassware, books and flasks. Candleberry Candles will be two for $22. Order a signature cocktail made with Blue Heron Vodka or Harvest Rum in an etched rocks glass for $15 and keep the glass. A $25 gift certificate for a January barrel stave painting class makes a great Christmas present.
The Open House provides an opportunity to view the progress of the distillery’s $9.9 million construction project. The distillery, located at 4095 Lebanon Road, recently installed a copper 43-foot tall continuous column still and six new 20,000-gallon fermentation tanks. When all the equipment is operating in early 2018, the distillery will produce around 150 barrels a day.
View the new equipment by taking a tour offered during the hours of 10 am. to 5 p.m. Open House hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Dec. 1 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 2.
This year’s Open House also is a time to share with others. Please bring a paper good, pasta or canned good to donate to New Hope Food Pantry in Danville.
