In about four years you will have the chance to taste a new Bourbon from Barrel House Distilling Co. Until then, you will have to settle for Pure Blue Vodka.
The new Rockcastle County distillery plans to start selling its vodka in early 2009. Barrell House ultimately wants to build a name for itself as a craft distiller of Bourbon. But while vodka can go from the still to the bottle, whiskey requires aging in oak barrels.
While Barrel House Distilling's partners watch the clock, Pure Blue Vodka will provide cash flow for the company.
