The Lexington Distillery District is a 25-acre property that was once home to the historic James E. Pepper Distillery, which began producing bourbon in 1879. The property was abandoned in 1958 but was revitalized 50 years later by a team of local entrepreneurs. It is now a lively, vibrant downtown destination that includes working distilleries, trendy restaurants, the Manchester Music Hall, art galleries, and much more. Grab lunch at the Elkhorn Tavern and jump on a distillery tour and tasting at Barrel House Distillery or the James E. Pepper Distillery.
