    The Old Boone Distillery, DSP-KY-39, was torn down about 1979. It was just south of Louisville along the Ohio River. Their bourbon was rye based and not bad. Austin-Nichols Co. used to buy bulk whiskey from them to support their growing Wild Turkey brand. Bill Padgent was the distiller there. After Old Boone, he work as plant manager at Maker's mark until he retired a few years ago.

    Julian,

    Do you have any more information about the Old Boone Distillery - or could you direct me to more info? I would indeed like to include a record on this distillery on The Whisky Portal.

    Thank you.
