Our Kentucky 74 is a beautifully distilled non-alcoholic spirit for bourbon cocktails. Kentucky 74 is crafted using our proprietary reverse distillation process. Kentucky 74 was named Best Non-Alcoholic Spirit and won a gold medal in the second annual L.A. Spirits Awards.
proprietary distillation process tells a story of craft and care.
1 / Mix
A variety of hand- selected American oak is combined with a high-proof neutral grain spirit.
2 / Thermal Extraction
By modulating the heat and pressure in the still, we imitate the barrel aging process seen in traditional spirits, over multiple years, in a matter of hours.
3 / Cooling
The intensely flavored high-proof oak-infused spirit cools in preparation for the next phase.
4 / Reverse Distillation
The reverse distillation process separates ethanol from our Kentucky 74 distillate. The ethanol is then removed and repurposed for the next batch; we call this our “regenerative ingredient.”
The distillate that remains in the still is non- alcoholic. This is where Kentucky 74 is born.
5 / Blending
Just like a fine craft Bourbon, Kentucky 74 is blended by selecting specific totes from various distillations, each with a unique character. Our distiller selects the perfect combination of totes to create Kentucky 74, a smooth, balanced spirit with hints of caramel, vanilla, and oak.
6 / Bottling
After blending to perfection, Kentucky 74 is ready for bottling. Our bottles are then filled and capped with our hand-stained red mahogany cork stopper.
three entrepreneurs and entertainers with a love for Bourbon Country.
Risk takers and move makers. Winers and diners. Storytellers and saveurs. And we always want one more Manhattan.
We love gathering for game days, spa days and work-all-days. But we’re also mamas who need to get up with our eight kids under eight (!!) for school days, play days and birthdays.
We have a business to run and a brand to build, up-and-comers to mentor, and movers and shakers to meet. We crave date night days and dance party days, but balance busting a move with early-bird-gets-the-worm days.
That’s why we believe: less is yes.
Spiritless is our solution to saying yes to more — and more often. It reflects our roots in hospitality, high-end spirits and, of course, our beloved, bourbon-soaked hometown, Louisville. Yet it’s at the forefront of the no-and-low-proof cocktail movement. It empowers us to forge beautiful human-to-human connections, to make healthy decisions around our drinking choices, to pick our potency and enjoy our favorite spirits while still doing it all… no matter the circumstances, occasion or day.
We hope it will do the same for you.
