Our Bourbon

With recipes and techniques passed down from generation to generation, let’s just say there are a few secrets we can’t let you in on. As for everything else, we love to share. Hundreds of minute decisions go into making each batch of whiskey. What makes Green River so distinctive is our uncompromising commitment to perfection.

The Fine Details

We craft our whiskey a little at a time, the old-fashioned way. A masterful high rye recipe with an amber hue, Green River is a 90-proof Straight Kentucky Bourbon crafted with 100% Kentucky-grown corn, most from the same county as the distillery, where we’ve built strong relationships with local farmers and the community. We blend two yeast strains perfect for fermenting. We use premium quality materials for distilling, including a 54-inch Vendome™ beer still with a custom copper top section along with copper condensers and doubler. Each barrel ages a minimum of five years in our traditional rickhouses.

Jacob Call Master Distiller

You could say Jacob Call has whiskey in his blood. Our eighth-generation Master Distiller, whose heritage stretches back to the earliest days of bourbon, and some of his own early memories include walking the rickhouse floors with his father and grandfather. They handed down equal parts complex know-how and love of craft. As Green River’s Master Distiller, Jacob oversees all aspects of the distillery’s whiskey production and warehousing.

I couldn’t be more excited to revive a historic brand like this in its original home. As someone with a family connection to the first days of Kentucky bourbon, being part of such a legendary whiskey’s revival has been the opportunity of a lifetime. For the first time in over 100 years, Green River bourbon is flowing again.
