Family owned and operated, Willett Distillery, nestled amongst the woods on a rolling hillside, is one of the top bourbon distilleries in the World. Landesco was selected to prepare plans for the main distillery, cistern room, gift shop, and warehouse area. Incorporating plants native to Kentucky, Landesco aimed to bring nature to Willett’s front door.
Landesco was asked to prepare a landscape plan for Willett Distillery, Gift Shop, Warehouse A, and Cistern Room areas.

Southern Magnolia, Sweetbay Magnolia, Lily Grass, Weeping Higan Cherry, Maiden Grass, Knockout Roses, Azaleas, and Hydrangeas.
