Four Finger Distillery
Blood. Sweat. Tears. Pinky.
You may know us as 1205 Distillery, but over the last few years, we have slowly transitioned to Four Finger Distillery. Same ownership, same incredible staff, same award-winning spirits, and the same delicious cocktails. The only thing different is our name.
Four Finger Distillery was founded in 2013 and was originally known as 1205 Distillery. 1205 was started by Teresa and Bill Webster with Brad Colver moving back home from Colorado to be the Master Distiller. During construction of the distillery, Brad made a bad cut using a miter saw and ended up cutting his finger off. Little did we know that this would be the beginning of a whole new brand. The Four Finger story started to take off. We throw a yearly party on the anniversary of the accident and even started to name our whiskey Four Finger Whiskey. It did not take long before we were at events and started to be recognized as "that four finger place".
Fast forward a few years when Brad and Teresa's son, Nolan, bought the distillery from Bill and Teresa so they could retire. We love the name 1205 Distillery, but we just kept getting pulled to the Four Finger story. After a few years of hearing customers say that they heard the Four Finger story, we began working on transitioning our brand to Four Finger Distillery. We renamed all of our whiskey to our Four Finger Series and started printing shirts with the Four Finger hand logo on them. After getting good reception from customers and liquor buyers, we decided to finally make the move. And now we are officially Four Finger Distillery!
We may have a different logo and name, but don't worry, we are the same great company that you have known to love over the years. We still make all of our award-winning spirits in house with local, Indiana grain and we still make the same delicious cocktails in our tasting rooms.
