Dueling Grounds Distillery
We are a start up whiskey Distillery located in Franklin, KY. The origin of our name is because Franklin was home to infamous dueling grounds. One notorious duel was on September 22, 1826, Representative Sam Houston of Tennessee severely wounded General William A. White in a pistol duel near Franklin, Kentucky, over the patronage political appointment of the Nashville Postmaster. It was thought to be the last duel fought on that spot, but by that time the infamous Kentucky Dueling Grounds had already seen more than 40 duels and earned its place in the history of lore of the Bluegrass state. No longer known as the Home of Duels, Franklin has instead become known as home to Dueling Grounds Distillery and its very first small batch craft offering of Kentucky Clear and Apple Pie. The whiskey is aging and will be ready in a few years.
