Celebrate the Derby and Cinco de Mayo with these Kentucky-based spirits

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!
