While with a tour group admiring Lexington’s brand-spankin’-new Town Branch Distillerylast Saturday, in bounded a 60-ish man wearing running tights below running shorts, a jacket and a ball cap.
A laggard late to the tour? A runner thirsty for whiskey instead of water?
Nope. It was Dr. Pearse Lyons, the multimillionaire guy who owns that joint and Alltech Brewing next door (maker of Kentucky Ale). Both business are scions of his much larger animal health and feed company, Alltech, a half-billion-dollar firm he founded in 1980.
