Ragged Branch Distillery

Alex Toomy, one of Ragged Branch Distillery’s founders, shows the barn where the distillery's wheat and rye bourbon ages for a minimum of two years.

In 2009, Alex Toomy approached his friends and colleagues Russell Nance and Chris Sarpy with an idea: to produce bourbon whiskey the old-fashioned way — no shortcuts, no other spirits, using local resources from start to finish. 

“It was an ambitious idea, certainly, and for three people who knew nothing about the whiskey business, it was a bit daunting,” Nance said.
