Hard Truth Distilling Co. began distilling in 2015 in the small upper rooms of Big Woods Pizza Co. in downtown Nashville, Indiana.

The tiny craft distillery quickly grew, and, by 2017, construction had begun on a new facility set on a rolling, wooded, 325-acre property about a mile away from Hard Truth’s original home.
That property became the gorgeous Hard Truth campus, with the Hard Truth Tours & Tastings Center being the first building to open its doors to guests at the very end of 2017.

The following summer, the Restaurant at Hard Truth opened to hungry guests.

And, in the fall of 2018, Hard Truth Distilling Co. made the move to its brand new, state-of-the-art, sweet mash distillery, where it’s been producing Hard Truth spirits ever since.

Over the past few years, our teams have continued to develop the property that surrounds the Hard Truth distillery with new tours and activities, festivals, and a major expansion at Hard Truth on the Rocks — a terraced, outdoor area with a stage for live music, food truck, and bar that operate seasonally.

The Hard Truth distilling team continues to work diligently, crafting a range of premium spirits, including popular crowd-pleasers like Maple Bourbon Cream and Hard Truth Toasted Coconut Rum and, of course, remarkable sweet mash whiskeys — the first of which, Hard Truth Sweet Mash Rye Whiskey, was released in November 2021.

Hard Truth Distilling Co. is part of the BWQOHT, Inc. family of brands, which also includes Big Woods Restaurants and Quaff ON! Brewing Co.
