Limestone Branch Distillery in Lebanon celebrated its grand opening Saturday, April 14. The distillery, owned by brothers Steve and Paul Beam, filled its first bourbon barrel. The Beam brothers allowed everyone in attendance to sign the barrel, which was made by Kentucky Cooperage. Those people will also get first dibs on the bourbon once it's aged.


The Beam family has a history of distilling in Kentucky, and their T.J. Pottinger Corn Whiskey was awarded the 2012 Gold Medal by the American Distillers Institute for best in class.
