"There's a great deal of confusion out there about just exactly who did what and how prohibition intervenes in anybody's history as a 'continuously operating.' But, we are listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the oldest continuously operating distillery west of the Mississippi," Harris said.
"Because of the limestone spring on the property it was perfect for producing Bourbon and they outfitted wagon trains heading west to San Francisco," said Harris.
The distillery was allowed to stay open during prohibition to make alcohol for medicinal purposes.
Today, McCormick Distilling has 172 employees who produce about 4,000,000 cases of liquor each year.
"Our history has always been taste, quality, and value and that's where we're going to go," Harris said.
The distillery's renovation has reduced its carbon footprint and made it more environmental friendly by using recycled glass and cardboard.
McCormick Distilling plans to launch its Triple Crown Blended Whiskey nationwide next year. You can sample its products at the McCormick Country Store
in downtown Weston.
