Jessamine County, founded in December of 1798, is a county located in the U.S. state of Kentucky. It is within the Inner Blue Grass region, which was the center of farming and blooded stock raising, including thoroughbred horses. It was formed in 1799. The population was 48,586 in the 2010 Census. Its county seat is Nicholasville. Jessamine County is part of the Lexington-Fayette, KY Metropolitan Statistical Area.

With regard to the sale of alcohol, it is classified as a "moist county", where alcohol sales are prohibited (a dry county), but that contains a "wet" city, in this case Nicholasville, where package alcohol sales are allowed. The Chrisman Mill Vineyards is also authorized to operate and sell its product in the dry portion of the county.
