Our roots run deep on the land we call home, and we embrace our role as locals. We are deeply connected to the land and the stories that have shaped our community. From the beginning, the vision for Land Run Distillery has encompassed much more than a distillery that produces premium bourbons and whiskeys. While these pursuits remain at the core of our mission, beyond the walls of the distillery our aspirations reach farther and extend to the revitalization and prosperity of our community. We carry the spirit of our ancestors who risked everything in pursuit of a better life and land ownership. It is their legacy that fuels our passion to weave our success seamlessly into the fabric of our community. Guided by their tenacity and vision, we are committed to making a lasting impact on Newkirk, Oklahoma, and the surrounding communities. We invite you to raise a glass of fine whiskey to the pioneers who came before us, the land that sustains us, and the vibrant future we will create together. As we embark on this extraordinary journey, we hope you will join us in writing the next chapter in Newkirk's story and embracing the possibilities that lie ahead.
