What’s better than one celebration? How about TWO?
Today on Indy Style, Mike Stone and Joyce Nethery of Jeptha Creed, make us a Derby and Cinco de Mayo theme cocktail!
About Jeptha Creed:
Jeptha Creed Distillery is women-owned and operated, premium craft distillery from Shelbyville, Kentucky. We are a farm to table, but we say ground to glass since we grow and locally source all ingredients to create our spirits. We use a late harvest heirloom varietal corn called bloody butcher corn. This corn is 100% used to make our award winning, gluten free vodka that is the official vodka for The Kentucky Derby Festival. We also distill and produce moonshine whiskeys and bourbon, which our 4 Grain Straight Bourbon will launch for Indiana next month!
