Our Story

Bourbon 30 Spirits is a small family operated business situated in the heart of the bluegrass region of Kentucky. Since the release of their first bottle of single barrel bourbon in 2014, Bourbon 30 Spirits is honored to offer products that keep with the rich traditions of distilling and barrel crafting in Kentucky.

The Bourbon 30 name has its own tradition as well. The brand name comes from when founder Jeff Mattingly and his brothers would steal bourbon from their dad. When they said, "It's bourbon 30", that meant the ole man wasn't looking. 

Newly retired from the auto industry, Jeff Mattingly founded Bourbon 30 in 2010.  One of the family's talents are being great cooks, so Jeff uses his acquired artisan talents to craft bourbon. He crafts each individual barrel to have a well balanced profile resulting in a great bourbon whiskey taste.

Co-owner Dominick Bizzarro met Jeff during a trip touring the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, and took an immediate interest in the art of barrel crafting.  Dominick's Italian heritage and culinary expertise needed the perfect bourbon pairing, and Bourbon 30 was that perfect pairing.  He joins the Bourbon 30 Spirits team with not only his culinary expertise, but over 30 years management and construction experience.

Scott Pugh joined the  Bourbon 30 Spirits team as a consultant to assist in product development, sales, and marketing.  Scott brings 14 years of experience in the industry as a seasoned global traveler, working for both Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon and the start up company, Venturi Brands.  He has sold and marketed high end premium labels, primarily in global markets, and develops premium labels for distribution in the US markets.

With the acquisition of Royal Springs Distillery in 2017, owners Jeff Mattingly and Dominick Bizzarro are now able to bring their expertise in the art of barrel crafting direct to the public.  Barrel samplings, artisan craft discussions and direct purchase of their barrel crafted spirits are offered daily at their historic 130 South Water Street site in Georgetown, Kentucky.  Bourbon 30 Spirits offers private barrel selection as well!
