Limestone Branch Distillery Featured on Discovery Channel's ''Moonshiner's''“Master Distiller Steve Beam’s Limestone Branch Distillery has caught the attention of fellow Moonshiner, Tim Smith,” said Carla Wagner of the Lebanon Tourist & Convention Commission. “Smith has teamed up with Beam at the distillery to work on their craft together, and it serves as the backdrop for much of the filming of the new season of the ‘Moonshiners.’”

You can experience the distillery first-hand by coming for a visit and free tour, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. Tours are given at the top of the hour. Limestone Branch is part of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail’s® newest tour, the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour®, which includes seven distinctive micro-distilleries and a passport program towards earning the coveted julep cup.

Lebanon has drawn much celebrity fan attention over the past few years. This rural Kentucky small town is home to Ernie Brown Jr., aka. “Turtleman,” star of the hit show, “Call of the Wildman,” on Animal Planet. Besides the United States, “Call of the Wildman” is viewed in Europe and Australia, luring many international visitors to Lebanon’s free-admission Marion County Heritage Center, site of the only permanent Turtleman exhibit in the world.

Don Johnson, the musical legend behind “President Lincoln’s Own Band,” featured in Steven Spielberg’s recent movie, “Lincoln,” is also from this quiet Kentucky home. His collection of J.W. Pepper instruments – one of the largest in the world – is also on display at the Heritage Center.

“If having the chance to run into these celebrities in their hometown while visiting their favorite hangouts isn’t enough, you may catch a show of Eddie Miles, nationally renowned Elvis tribute star, or see Eddie’s lifelong memorabilia right here in his childhood home,” said Wagner.
