Distillery Information

Originally operating as Worsham Distilling Company, the Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company began in Henderson, Kentucky in the early 1880s. In 1889, under the leadership of the entrepreneur and our ancestor, Henry Kraver, Peerless Whiskey production began to flourish.

Kraver wasted no time making upgrades to machinery and investing in additional warehouses that eventually became U.S. Federally Bonded following the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. Thus, production of Peerless whiskey raised substantially from 8 to 200 barrels a day.

Through the early 1920s, the Peerless federally-bonded warehouses were used for whiskey storage under the armed protection of the U.S. Government. During Prohibition, Peerless product was one of the few available by prescription for medicinal use.

The original Kentucky Peerless Distilling was Distilled Spirits Plant (DSP) number 50. Today, we are privileged to have that same number. The newly assigned DSP numbers are in the 20,000s. We are very happy to say DSP-KY-50 is our own.

Now, five generations have been connected to Peerless. The family namesake was revived by Kraver’s great-grandson, Corky Taylor and his son, Carson Taylor.
