The Pogue Distillery - 1910


The H.E. Pogue Distillery Company – 1910

A concern of importance, because of the high character of the house, and the immensity of its operation, is found in the H.E. Pogue Distillery Company. This is one of the largest and best known distilleries in the State of Kentucky. The Company are distillers of fine sour mash Kentucky Bourbon, Rye, and Wheat whiskies, their special brands being “ Old Time”, and “ Old Maysville Club.” These distilleries were established in 1866 and are known as the “Old Time” distilleries. Employment is given to thirty people and they grind 600 bushels daily, and at the present time have about 15,000 barrels of whiskey in the warehouse. John F. Pogue is President; and H.E. Pogue, manager, and they have built up a large business strictly through honorable methods and today enjoy the reputation of being one of the best known and best patronized in the State of Kentucky.

I would love to find a bottle of that "Old Maysville Club". I wonder if it is still available ?

The Pogue family has again begun to distill the Pogue Bourbon. I think they are producing it out of Bardstown or somewhere in the Bourbon belt in KY. I saw it at the Liquor Barn in Lexington, priced just under $40 a bottle. I told my wife that if I win the lottery, I will buy a bottle.
