The F G Walker Distillery
RD #410, 5 th District
Nelson County, KY

(Est. 1881)


Cecil (1999; p. 122) notes that Felix G Walker built the distillery in 1881. His distiller was Morgan Edelin, who appears in the records below as "Estel Spring Distillery". Walker's other partner was D S Wood.

Insurance underwriter records compiled in 1892 suggest that the distillery was of frame construction with a metal or slate roof. The property included two bonded warehouses:
Warehouse A 1 -- iron-clad and located 75 ft south of the still.
Warehouse B 2 -- iron-clad, located 250 ft SW of the still

At that time, it was being operated by F G Walker.

Walker retired in 1896 but Edelin and others continued operations until bankruptcy in 1916. James B Beam bought the plant, but it was closed at Prohibition.
