Green River Distilling Co. is expanding their distribution to 21 new markets putting the Green River Kentucky Straight Wheated Bourbon in 25 total markets throughout the nation.
This announcement comes after a four-state launch in 2022 and joining the Bardstown Bourbon Company.

The expansion also announces the launch of Green River Full Proof Single Barrel. The barrel will be a 119 proof (59.5% abv) expression of the Green River Kentucky Straight Bourbon. A limited number of barrels will be available annually for purchase by the barrel on select on- and off-premise retailers.
