Live Music – Andy Branton

Louisville-based country-blues artist Andy Branton cut his teeth playing guitar in country and rock & roll bands around the West Alabama bar scene. After years of collecting stories and songs while driving up and down Alabama’s highways and dirt roads, he self-released his debut EP 47 Minutes Away in late 2018.
Andy assembled a crack team of Birmingham, Alabama’s finest musicians – including Adrian Marmolejo of Early James & the Latest (Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound) and Les Nuby formerly of Verbena (Capitol Records) – to commit his songs to tape. The band worked its magic, cranking out the tunes in just one 8-hour session.
The namesake of the EP is an up-tempo, country-rock scorcher about coming home to Little Rock, Arkansas after being on the road for weeks. It heavily features Ford Boswell (Early James & the Latest) on pedal steel and Daniel Raine (Little Raine Band) on piano and harmonica.

Live Music – Rick Ryman

Rick Ryman is a Singer/Songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee who writes about life and sings from the heart. He is a Country/Americana music performer. His style of country music is enjoyed by many who follow country music and to those outside of country music. What’s appealing about his music is his creative writing and simple melodies.
They are songs that are relatable to the Truck Driver and the everyday Blue Collar worker, along with the ordinary music lover. Simply put, fun music.
Rick grew up in a small town of New Baltimore, Ohio, just Northwest of Cincinnati in Southwestern Ohio. It’s a small river town where he grew up listening to all kinds of music, but took a love for country music. His music is based on his three major singer/songwriter influences, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and David Allan Coe. Many will tell you that they can hear the musical influences in the songs he writes.
Rick is an Air Force Veteran, Truck Driver, and former Radio Air Personality. He has taken many of his life’s experiences, from the trucking and Blue Collar situations, and put them to a song. I can’t say that he speaks for the workin’ man, but he sure does share a voice with them. And, who hasn’t had their heart broken and wanted to hear a crying in your beer song? Ryman has his own unique twist on slow, sad, ballads that leaves the listener wanting more.

Our recently announced $2M expansion will dramatically increase the production capabilities and capacity impacting local communities and establish Western Kentucky as a producer of authentic quality spirits. Phase II of the project revolves around the construction of a brand new 7000 square foot barrel storage rickhouse.
The all-new rickhouse is the first post-prohibition barrel storage facility in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. The structure will reach 2 stories tall and hold 3000 barrels of award winning spirits on a series of barrel racks.
The building is critical to distillation operations as the primary facility for creating the distinct flavor and color of aged spirits. In addition to storage, the rickhouse will also become a new focal point for the distillery guest experience.
Patrons will be able to tour the structure to learn about the storage and aging process. Additionally, the distillery will offer guests the opportunity to experience barrel spirits tastings with Master Distiller, Arlon Casey Jones.
