Official opening of Lux Row Distillers
The new distillery in Bardstown is part of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail
Lux Row Distillers celebrated the official opening of their new Bourbon distillery. Production already started in January but now a ceremonious ribbon cutting event took place.
The company has already been on market with successful whiskey labels as Ezra Brooks, Rebel Yell, David Nicholson or Blood Oath, but so far the production of the spirits had taken place in other distilleries. Now the whiskies have their own home in the heart of the Bourbon industry and Lux Rox Distillers took full control over all production progresses.
In May 2016 plans to build a distillery had been published by the Lux Family and already in March 2017 the still, 36 inch high, was installed. Since the production started in January 2.200 barrels were filled and placed in the warehouse. The annual capacity is 20.000 barrels and can be increased up to 50.000 barrels the press release points out.
Lux Row Distillers is a so called „Heritage Member“of the Kentucky Distillers‘ Association which is the highest degree of the non-profit organization. The distillery also runs a visitor center with tasting rooms and shop. Tours are available.
