Heaven’s Door to Open Distillery in Kentucky

By May 25, 2023Top News

Heaven’s Door, the whiskey brand founded by Bob Dylan, announced plans to open a new distillery in Pleasureville, Kentucky, in September 2023. Located on more than 160 acres of rolling hills astride Six Mile Creek, the picturesque property was once owned by Squire Boone, the brother of legendary frontiersman Daniel Boone. The Heaven’s Door Distillery features two separate stillhouses, a Visitor’s Center with tasting rooms and lounges overlooking the valley and Six Mile Creek, an 18-century gristmill, two 18th-century cabins and a Moravian barn. Ken Pierce, an industry veteran, was brought on as Master Distiller to lead the project from design through distillation. The Heaven’s Door brand center includes plans to construct a new 15,000-square-foot immersive art experience to feature a collection of Dylan’s paintings and metalworks, as well as curated exhibitions of other artists.
