The W B Saffell Distillery
RD #123, 8 th District
Anderson County, KY

(Est. 1889)

Cecil (1999) notes that W B Saffell had worked for W H McBrayer for 20 years prior to setting up his distillery in 1889.

Insurance underwriter records compiled in 1892 suggest that the distillery was iron-clad. The property included a cattle barn 63 ft SE of the still-house, and two bonded warehouses:
Warehouse A -- frame construction with a metal or slate roof, 250 ft west of the still.
Warehouse B -- frame construction with a metal or slate roof, 130 ft west of the still and 10 ft from warehouse A.
A cistern room was located 103 ft west of the still.

Saffell died in 1910 at age 68, but the distillery continued on until Prohibition. It was not reopened after Repeal.
