About Rich Grain Distilling
Mississippi was the first state in the country to enact alcohol prohibition in 1917 and the last state in the union to repeal it in 1966. Rich Grain Distilling Co., located in historic Canton, is only the third legal distillery ever in Mississippi’s existence and is the first one specializing in full flavored bourbon whiskies. Before prohibition, there were small distilleries all over the country, and one of which was called Rich Grain Distilling Co. in Kansas City, MO. The original distillery went out of business with the onset of prohibition, but now owner David Rich has resurrected that once proud historic brand. The beautiful original logo was recreated digitally and now adorns the front of the distillery and all of our bottles.
