A New Era Of Bourbon Has Begun

Blue Run Spirits is the bold and distinctive Kentucky Bourbon for bold and distinctive whiskey drinkers. Steeped in heritage. Impeccably crafted. Aged to perfection. This is the future of bourbon.

Taste The Extraordinary

Even before the first hint touches your lips, you’ll know this super-premium bourbon is different. Vibrant. With a subtly enhanced flavor profile and smooth finish that’s at once tantalizing and welcoming. Savor it neat, or as the foundation of our bespoke cocktails. This is the bottle you’ll reach for every time.

Modern Elegance

Blue Run’s sumptuous notes of vanilla, brown butter and ripe apricots come through in each delicious sip. From the sleek bottle to the last luscious drop, this is your time for luxury — with just enough edge to keep things interesting.

A New Legend In The Making

We wouldn’t be here without the distillers of yore who dedicated their lives to the art of whiskey. But it’s time to push the dusty labels aside and make room on the top shelf for bourbon’s new pioneers. Our super-premium batches and infusions marry modern flavor with the same master craftsmanship shared by the greats.

Our Story

Blue Run Spirits was founded as an ideal. We wanted to create a super-premium bourbon that tasted so rich and smooth it would entice a new generation of enthusiasts, as well as satisfy the most discerning aficionado. The banks of Kentucky’s Royal Spring — what cofounder Jesse McKnight called the “Blue Run” as a kid — with its pure, limestone-filtered water, seemed like the perfect place to start. After all, as the birthplace of bourbon in 1789, the Blue Run is steeped in more than two centuries of distilling history. And now, it’s where bourbon is being reborn.
