Bourbon Built was established in April 2012 and offers dry goods for wet counties. Bourbon Built celebrates the heritage of bourbon, the once and future Louisville, and a Kentucky as rugged as it is beautiful. It’s a modern brand for a nostalgic past. Louisville and towns across the Commonwealth were built on bourbon. And if you prefer a drink as strong as its tradition, you just might be bourbon built, too. Bourbon Built was co-founded by Kevin Yates and Katie Kelty.
Mixing local and regional products handmade and artisanal with curated vintage pieces and unique lines from around the world. With expansion into the space next door on Market and a new location open on South 4th Street, in the original downtown shopping district, Gifthorse continues to seek to provide something new and different to the public.
Bourbon Built has always been a perfect fit for the Gifthorse concept, and Shawn and Butch will always be grateful and honored to be a part of great Dry Goods for Wet Counties line. We hope to continue the amazing work that Kevin and Katey began.
