Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 16, 2000):
Labrot & Graham's Old Oscar Pepper Distillery is importantly associated with the development of the bourbon industry, an enterprise of national significance centered in Kentucky. As the birthplace of bourbon in the 1830s, this site illustrates the evolution of the trade from the traditional pot still distilling of farmers during the early 19th century to the mature and highly specialized industry of the post-Repeal era. This 72 acre site has been used for the conversion of grain into alcohol since 1812, and its industrial architecture setting stands with few modern intrusions.

Condition:
The property is in great condition.

There are no changes to the landmark.
