The Elkhorn Tavern
Named after the Town Branch of the Elkhorn river, which flows alongside it, this new lounge and taproom allows Barrel House Distilling Co. to showcase inventive cocktails made from their products: Pure Blue Vodka, Devil John Moonshine, Kentucky Oak Rum and RockCastle Bourbon. A selection of other spirits and a beer and wine menu is also available. The building is the original barreling house of the James E. Pepper Distillery, founded in 1780, and the decor reflects that rustic and historic theme, with natural wood accents and copper bar tops and ceilings.
