Castle Brands will work with BBCo to produce custom bourbon and whiskey for the Jefferson’s Bourbon portfolio. BBCo and Jefferson’s will begin their first distillation this year.
The news comes about a week after Castle Brands announced its procurement of $4.2 million in bourbon stocks.
Through BBCo’s distilling program, Castle Brands will work with Bourbon Hall of Fame Master Distiller Steve Nally and BBCo’s distilling team, led by Executive Director of Distilling Operations John Hargrove, to produce its bourbons and whiskeys for many years to come.
“We know that Bardstown’s experienced distilling team will provide the continuity needed to produce the consistent taste profile that our discerning Jefferson’s consumers have come to expect,” says John Glover, executive VP and COO of Castle Brands.
Due to the success of its sold out Collaborative Distilling Program, BBCo recently broke ground on a distillery expansion project. The distillery’s current 3 million proof gallon capacity will be expanded to 6 million proof gallons by June 2018.
