Leiper’s Fork Distillery’s 5000 sq. ft. timber frame building sits on 27 rolling acres just outside the historic village of Leiper’s Fork.
Williamson County, Tennessee has long been known for its rich cultural and geographical heritage. Many of our early settlers in this county were of Scots-Irish descent, having traveled west through the Cumberland Gap and over the Appalachian Mountains, from Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Many of them crossed these mountain passes with their stills on their backs, bringing with them the time-honored tradition of creating hand-crafted small batch whiskey. It is with this same spirit of independence, fortitude, and perseverance that strove to bring Leiper’s Fork Distillery to life.
They aimed to resurrect the lost history and heritage of small-batch whiskey production in Williamson County.
“In a world of mass production and corporate fads, we have a goal to achieve long-term authenticity by using age-old traditions, paying attention to every detail, and carrying an unquenchable passion for the whiskey we produce. To that end, Leiper’s Fork Distillery is creating high-end premium whiskeys using local ingredients and pure limestone-filtered water, resulting in superior whiskeys with a signature taste.”
