We are a small whiskey company based in Bardstown, Kentucky, the heart of bourbon country.We began as an idea in 2008 when the founder, Darren Lincoln, wanted to create a whiskey company that produces special bourbons and ryes in small batches, unfiltered, and high proof. It took 5 years of hard work and a lot of money to bring Cotton Hollow Distilling bourbons to the store shelves but in 2013, our first batch, a 4 year old Kentucky Bourbon at 93 proof hit the shelves in Texas and the entire batch was sold out of Texas in just 2 months.
We work hard ever day to make sure that the whiskeys that we produce live up the expectations of our fans and our founder’s principals.
About Our Name:
The name Cotton Hollow comes from a real place and is our source for inspiration. Cotton Hollow was one of the first cotton processing mills in the New World. It was built at a time when the British forbid the colonies from processing their own cotton. The people that built Cotton Hollow showed a strong independence and a desire to defy the world’s greatest power to do what they thought was right.
