Bardstown Bourbon Company to build own bottling facility
The company will create 25 new jobs inCounty
In the heart of Bourbon County, Kentucky, the Bardstown Bourbon Company produces around 26.5 million liters of alcohol annually, enough for 30 a day. Since 2018, they have their own Brand, Bardstown Bourbon, but most of the is done on behalf of 27 customers, using 40 different bills.
In a press release, the Bardstown Bourbon Company has now announced to have broken ground on a large expansion project: A 47,000 square foot (4366 m²) facility will be built.
“The bottling facility is the natural next step in our evolution,” said Bardstown Company CEO Mark Erwin. “Currently, both our brands and our collaborative partners are bottled by an offsite third party. We’re excited to close the circle and enable a true grain to glass process all in our own space.”
25 new jobs are to be created here to fill hundreds of thousands of cases every year, including brands such as Jefferson’s, High West, Belle Meade, Hirsch, Calumet, James E. Pepper, and Cyrus Noble. The building was planned by Joseph & Joseph Architects from Louisville, Kentucky, and the work is being carried out by Buzick Construction from Bardstown, Kentucky. Next year 2021 the construction of the new bottling facility will be completed.
