A distilling company from the 1800s is coming back to Nelson County. Log Still will include a distillery, bottling facility, rickhouses and visitor center with a gift shop and tasting room.
“The Log Still Distilling project is special,” said Kim Huston, Nelson County Economic Development Authority president, “because it’s not only resurrecting a distillery property with great bourbon heritage, but it’s being done by the great-great-great grandson of distillery founder Joseph W. Dant.”
The new distillery will be built on land originally home to distillery operations of Dant’s sons.
Log Still plans to hire 20 full-time employees.
