Jim Rutledge and partners spirits industry veterans, Stephen Camisa and Jon Mowry, are planning a sustainable distillery close to Louisville – of course. The distillery, J.W. Rutledge Distillery, is projected to cost $2 million and Rutledge and partners hope to raise the money on IndieGoGo. Considering it’s Jim Rutledge, they might just double their goal! The mid-size distillery hopes to produce between 30,000 and 40,000 barrels of whiskey a year.

It’ll be years before we’re imbibing Rutledge bourbon and rye but it gives us something to look forward to!
