Castle & Key Distillery

About Us
The Castle & Key Story

Castle & Key is a growing, family-owned distillery fueled by passionate people. Ours is a space where people enjoy being part of a company drenched in a deep and meaningful history, creating premium spirits. Located in Frankfort, KY, Castle & Key has become a popular travel destination for spirits and history enthusiasts alike. In 2014, our team, led by owner Will Arvin, purchased the Old Taylor Distillery in ruins. After extensive restoration, the distillery opened its doors in 2018. In March 2022, Castle & Key Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey became the first bourbon distillate that has been distilled and released at the Historic Old Taylor Distillery in nearly five decades. 
With a focus on maintaining a healthy culture where everyone thrives while honoring an even work/life balance, Castle & Key empowers you to grow and advance in a highly collaborative setting with a close-knit team. You'll be at the forefront of creating and developing systems and solutions at a place where we are reimagining how Kentucky spirits are presented to the world. We invite you to join us and be a part of our story.
