KDA Annouces White Dog Trading & Storage as Newest Member


September 7, 2021

The Kentucky Distillers’ Association today announced that White Dog Trading & Storage in Woodford County is the newest member of the state’s bourbon industry, non-profit trade group.

Located at 167 McKinney Avenue in Midway, White Dog joins KDA as a “Proof” level member, aging between 10,000 and 49,999 barrels a year. The campus includes a series of 55,000-square-foot warehouses, plus a Distillery and Event Center to include offices, room for a restaurant and bar, and tourism activities. White Dog is the association’s 45th member.

Co-founders Mark Harris and Dr. Harry Lockstadt opened White Dog Trading & Storage in 2016. White Dog offers barrel brokerage services and contract storage, and will soon offer contract distilling services for clients. Harris expects the second warehouse to be fully operational by February 2022 and the Event Center to be ready late Spring 2022. 

KDA President Eric Gregory said White Dog demonstrates a growing sector of the industry by providing sought-after barrel storage and contract production services necessary for Kentucky’s growing industry. 

“Mark and his team have built an impressive campus using state-of-the-art systems that will provide essential services for distillers of all sizes,” Gregory said. “We proudly welcome White Dog into the KDA family of Kentucky’s finest distillers.”
