FAQ

GENERAL 

DIDN'T YOU USED TO BE THREE BOYS FARM DISTILLERY?

Yes we did. And before that, we were Whiskey Thief Distilling Company, which has been our legal name since before we were licensed by the government to distill Bourbon. In 2022, we brought the name back because we think that it better captures the spirit of the place, as a "whiskey thief" is the tool we use to serve our Bourbons to our guests. One place, two names.

 

WHAT IS YOUR ADDRESS?
Our address is 283 Crab Orchard Rd, Frankfort, KY 40601.

We do, but typically only on Fridays and Saturdays.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE IN A TOUR & TASTING GROUP?

WHY DON'T YOU DISTRIBUTE?
Currently, we don’t. As we sell unique single-barrel products, we value direct relationships with our customers. The demand for on-site sales has been great. But, never say never. Our plan is to increase sales by shipping online soon. Also, we are looking to be carried in select retailers later.
