In the midst of Derby week madness, a friend and I took a short trip east to the Jeptha Creed Distillery for a little rest and relaxation. Pulling up to the beautiful distillery building, we were greeted by a gorgeous old Ford and other vintage vehicles. The gleaming presentation continued as we entered the gift shop and lobby. Turning to the right, a beautiful bar called to us and we sampled some drinks while we waited for the tour to begin, although we skipped the paninis and small bites for fear we wouldn’t have time to finish them. I had a strawberry melon slushie (strawberry puree, melon liquor, Jeptha’s Ne Oublie bitters, Jeptha’s honey vodka), and my friend had a bloody mary with bacon salt on the glass as bartender Mackenzi Kyeoehlein told us how everything is made mostly from Jeptha Creed farm produce, but the few things that are outsourced come from local farmers.
