The S O Hackley Distillery
RD #406, 8 th District
Anderson County, KY



There is anecdotal evidence that the distillery was founded in 1880 by S O Hackley.

1884: John Colter, Proprietor. (Louisville City Directory).

1889: Hackley took on Ike Hoffman as partner (Cecil 1999).

1892: Insurance underwriter records indicate that the distillery was stone with a shingle roof. The property included a single bonded warehouse (part Free), located 100 ft west of the still.

At that time, it was being operated by the Hoffman Distillery Co., also doing business as S O Hackley (among others: see below).

1912: Cecil suggests that Hoffman, who was now sole owner, went bankrupt and the distillery was no longer running by 1916. A new distillery was built on the site after Repeal.
