Welcome to C88 Holdings, LLC, one of the world’s finest premier artisan drinks companies, located in downtown Louisville, Kentucky on “Whiskey Row.” We’re glad you found us, and we look forward to introducing you to our fine products.
C88 Holdings, LLC is part of the craft distilling renaissance that is sweeping not only the drinks industry, but is at the forefront of the “earth to table” movement around the world. Consumers are increasingly demanding authenticity and artisan quality in their foods and beverages. C88 Holdings was founded to contribute and participate in this movement by producing small batch, artisan created, spirited brands that fulfill consumer needs and community expectations.
C88 Holdings is located at 7th & Main Street on “Whiskey Row” in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, the heart of America’s thriving Bourbon industry. Clearly, a renaissance is underway, both in geography and business spirituality. Once the heart of America’s Whiskey trade in the 1800’s, the area has been reborn and historic facades are being returned to their original glory. The artisan spirit is alive and well in Louisville, and C88 Holdings is proud to be in the center of it all.
Not only is C88 Holdings proud to call Louisville home, we are fortunate enough to be in the heart of some of the world’s premier industry talent. We are able to source the highest quality ingredients, materials, and human innovation available anywhere.
Our building, at the corner of West Main Street and North 7th Street, is in the middle of what was once, and is now again, called “Whiskey Row.” We sit one block from the Ohio River, one of the main intra-state commercial trading arteries for America’s goods. It is adjacent to our location, at the “Falls of the Ohio,” where Lewis and Clark launched their expedition in 1803 at the commission of President Thomas Jefferson. This was the first expedition to map the newly annexed Western Territories, recently acquired in the Louisiana Purchase.
Our historic building was constructed in the French New Orleans style, which is a bit different than many of the other building facades in the area. Throughout its history, our building has been used as a restaurant, an inn, a brothel, and today it lives as an office center. Whiskey was an important trading staple predating the founding of our country. We think its apt that we can continue that tradition with fine artisan spirits at the same location that it began almost 300 years ago.
