For over 100 years Joseph & Joseph has been creating significant buildings for the production of bourbon, including some of the most well-known names in the industry – Early Times, Brown-Forman, Michter’s, Seagram and Angel’s Envy. We have designed complete distillery campuses that incorporate all of the processes necessary for both small- and large-batch bourbon production as well as urban micro-distilleries. Many of the distilleries on our docket also include visitor experience, retail operations, tasting bars and event spaces.

Joseph & Joseph has completed over $200 million of construction projects using historic tax credits. Using a comprehensive process to evaluate the original design and preserve each building’s historic value, our professionals have developed alternative uses for many older buildings, including conversions to distilleries, hotels, offices, conference centers and other creative reuses. We have written nominations for many of our clients’ buildings to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
