Log Still Distilling coming to Nelson County

The Dant family is returning to Nelson County with plans to revitalize property near New Haven and build a $12 million distillery. During Bardstown’s National Bourbon Day kickoff Friday, Log Still Distilling LLC announced it will construct a premium bourbon and rye whiskey operation on Dee Head Road between New Haven and New Hope. The campus will include a distillery, bottling operation, rick houses and a visitor center with gift shop and tasting room, and looks to create up to 20 full-time jobs. “It’s going to be a big renovation project,” owner J. W. “Wally” Dant said during Friday’s cermony at Spalding Hall Lawn, adding the project includes plans to use an existing bottling house on the property as well as an existing water tower.
