  • Company/Location Overview

    The Glenmore Distillery has been a fixture in the Owensboro Community since the late 1800s. During Prohibition, The Glenmore Distillery was fortunate enough to be one of four distilleries in the country allowed to operate on a limited scale for medicinal necessity.


    In March of 2009 the Sazerac Company purchased the distillery and reprised the name The Glenmore Distillery. The distillery boasts one of the largest and most modern bottling facilities in the country and continues to be a sizable employer in the city of Owensboro, KY.


    The Sazerac Company’s vision is to become one of the industry’s most desired places to be.  The company attributes its success to a unique blend of history, culture, brands, relationships, innovation, technology, and most importantly, its people.
