“Lulbegrud Creek: If you can say it once…have another!”

It’s hard to imagine that less than one year ago, I met Brian Endicott, the founder of Lulbegrud Creek Distilling Company, LLC. A friend and I were taking a road trip to Indianapolis for a suicide prevention event. We needed a place to stay on the way up and being strapped for cash, my friend asked her friend, Brian if we could crash at his place.

When I walked into Brian’s home for the first time, he didn’t do the usual handshake and formal introduction. He gave me a big ole’ eastern Kentucky hug and welcomed me like we were long-lost friends from grade school. He led me straight into the kitchen, where he had already prepared a selection of meat and cheeses, assorted dips and crackers, and of course, Kentucky bourbon. He exclaimed, “Oh, I just love bourbon!”

I will never forget that evening. There is nothing as sweet as being welcomed into a stranger’s home after a long day on the road. Unless, of course, that stranger also has good food and great bourbon! We spent the evening getting to know each other, but it felt more like catching up. I can guarantee that once Lulbegrud Creek gets up and running, when you stop by the distillery, you will feel the same way. Brian Endicott knows no strangers and hospitality flows out of him, well, like bourbon from a distillery. His company will be a symbol of what eastern Kentucky is all about: good people, good company, and if you like, good bourbon.

Small Town, Big Vision

Lulbegrud Creek will be based in Winchester, KY, the county seat of Clark county. Winchester is about 30 minutes outside of Lexington, KY and there are rolling hills and horse farms all around. With a population of less than 20,000, it definitely has a small-town feel to it. I can already imagine walking through the historic streets of downtown Winchester to Lulbegrud Creek Distillery. Eastern Kentucky embodies all things home and it’s impossible to feel like a stranger there. Brian Endicott shares this deep love of Kentucky and his heritage. His mother is a McCoy of the famous Hatfield-McCoy family feud of the 1800’s. You don’t get any more homegrown than Brian Endicott.

Brian Endicott is a descendant of the McCoys of the famous Hatfield-McCoy family feud and of the first governor of the first colony of Massachusetts.

Brian has big plans with small, hometown roots for his company. I love to hear Brian talk about his craft: “This distillery will…enable us to create a product that embodies the idea of simpler times when you didn’t have to ask if your product was natural or organic, you knew it came from the Earth you lived on and that meant no worries.” He will use local, organic ingredients to not only make sure people know what they are drinking, but also to support the local economy. He says Kentucky has given much to him and he wants to take this opportunity to give back to the state and the people he loves so much.
