HISTORY: 160 years in the making, the Holladay Distillery is the oldest distillery west of the Mississippi River still located on its original site, and is the proud home of McCormicks Distilling Company. Nestled in the rolling hills of Weston, Missouri, the distillery is rich in history and full of surprises. For the first time in 30 years, the distillery is again distilling bourbon on-site with the same 160-year-old recipe, in the same mid-1800s stillhouse and with the same limestone spring water. History has come full circle at the Holladay Distillery. Tours are now being offered for the first time in over 20 years.
