Luxco, Inc. is a privately owned producer and marketer of distilled beverages and liqueurs. Formerly called the David Sherman Corporation, the Company was renamed in 2006. The company was founded in 1958 in St. Louis, Missouri, by David Sherman Sr. and Paul A. Lux. The company sells beverages across the United States and does some international trade.

Some brands of Luxco are Arrow liqueurs, Caffé Lolita, El Mayor, Everclear, Ezra Brooks Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey, Juarez tequila, Pearl vodka, Purple Passion, Rebel Yell whiskey, Saint Brendan's Irish Cream, Salvador's, Tvarscki vodka, and Yago Sant'gria, a sangria. Luxco used to also own the Admiral Nelson Spiced Rum brand but has since sold it in late 2011.

At the end of 2011 Luxco agreed to acquire all of the outstanding stock of Paramount Distillers Inc. of Cleveland and its Meier’s Wine Cellars subsidiary in Cincinnati. And at the time had $220 million in sales and about 180 employees. In January of 2013 Luxco also bought Beam's Wolfschmidt, Dark Eyes, Calvert, Bellows, Canada House and Tempo brands for 65 million.

Manufacturing, packaging, marketing and distribution all take place at the company facilities in St. Louis.
