The O.Z. Tyler Distillery in Owensboro, Kentucky has a storied past dating back to the late 1800s. The 25-acre distillery site last produced whiskey in 1993 as the Medley Distillery and then laid dormant until it was purchased by the Terressentia Corporation in 2014. After extensive renovations, the distillery was renamed for O.Z. “Ty” Tyler, co-inventor of the TerrePURE® process, which we use to refine our bourbon after it has been barrel-aged.

The O.Z. Tyler Distillery began producing Kentucky Bourbon in August, 2016 and will begin bottling in 2017.

The Gift Shop is open Monday through Friday from 10am - 3pm, and Satrudays 10am - 4pm (CST).

Hard-hat tours are available Monday through Friday at 11am and 2pm, and Saturdays at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm.

  • This was great tour! We had never done any distillery tour, so I'm glad we chose this one to be our first one. The bar has been set high! Our tour guide was awesome too. Unfortunately I can't remember his name to save my life (he used to work at Disney. If Green River replies with his name, I'll update this review to include it), but he was great. Super friendly and knowledgeable. I really had no idea what it took to make Bourbon before this tour, but now I have a new found appreciation for it. I highly recommend this tour if you're out in Western Kentucky. And even if you're not, make this the reason to go. *Edit* Green River Distillery has replied with our tour guide's name. His name is Grant. I'm not sure if you can request specific people to be your guide, but if you can, request him. He was amazing.
  • We have been doing the bourbon tour for a couple of years now and this was one of our best ones. The history and tour guide was awesome. Sorry I can’t remember the young man’s name but he made it great even though it was 20deg outside. We left with 3 bottles. It’s warm now.
