Yellowstone Bourbon was started by J. B. Dant (son of J. W. Dant) who teamed up with D. H. Taylor and J. T. Williams to found the Yellowstone Distillery and bottle Yellowstone (named after the national park) bourbon sometime in the 1880s. In 2010, Paul and Steve Beam, descendants of both J. W. Dant and the legendary Beam family, founded Limestone Branch Distillery with the intention of crafting only the finest whiskey and the dream of restoring the Yellowstone® brand to its former glory. In the spring of 2015, that dream came true when they partnered with Luxco to bring the Yellowstone brand back to the family and commissioned Steven Noble to illustrate their new labels. Distilled and aged in Kentucky and bottled in historic Lebanon, KY, these custom hand-drawn woodcut illustrations draw direct parallelism to this handcrafted brand.
