Loping crow distillery started with a treasured recipe and a desire to make sure this legacy was preserved - legally. In 2022, We built the distillery on the family farm, a farm that has been in our family for over one hundred years. This project took time, but all good things do. details matter. Every post and beam and rough-sawn plank were cut by hand by master distiller, tony Dennis. The vintage windows dividing the tasting room and the production room are from the home of our great-grandfather. Questions about the shiny buckles lining the wall over the bar? ask for todd harrell, our resident horseman. He also knows good whiskey and great conversation.
"I walked into Locust ABC and the clerk suggested this local distillery bottle. He said the distillery was down the road. I bought the bottle but was curious about the distillery so I drove 10mins down the road and found it. They weren't open yet but I was parked in the lot and while reading their website an old man came to my window and asked if he could help me. I told him I had just bought a bottle of bourbon and was curious about the distillery. He said, "I'm the man that made that bottle." It was the master distiller himself. A once in a life time experience. He even opened the doors, gave me a sample, and signed the bottle that I bought at the store. He and Will were very hospitable. I will forever have a bottle of Scout 74 on my shelf. Thank you, Tony and Will."

"Had a really great day here today. Really friendly staff and a cool family history. Their spirits are top notch and I would put them up against many major distilleries. They have their processes down and produce a superb liquor. So glad we came here today, will be back to visit for sure!"
