Event Details

By Mike Veach, Bourbon Historian

Edmond Haynes Taylor, Jr. was one of the Bourbon industries most influential people in the 19th century.

EH Taylor LabelsHe was born in the Jackson Purchase region of Kentucky in 1830 and educated in Lexington, Ky. Taylor was trained in the banking industry and was a partner in a private bank in Lexington in the 1850s. In 1871, he entered politics at the Mayor of Frankfort, where he served until 1877 and again from 1881-1890. However, it was the distilling industry that brought him fame and fortune, first as the junior partner in Gaines, Berry and Co. and then with his own distilleries at the OFC Distillery in Frankfort and the Old Taylor Distillery in Millville, Ky.

Taylor helped change the way bourbon was sold.
