As the American whiskey industry continues to expand rapidly, Lux Row Distillers will undergo a $4-million expansion beginning this November.
The Bardstown, KY company is the home of the Ezra Brooks, Rebel, Daviess County, David Nicholson and Blood Oath bourbon brands.
When completed in late 2022, the expansion will allow Lux Row Distillers to operate 24 hours per day and increase its capacity by 75 percent, the company says. With more than 18,000 square feet, ten barrel warehouses at capacity and a 43-foot custom copper still, Lux Row will have the ability to distill more than 50 thousand barrels of whiskey annually.
“Lux Row Distillers broke ground nearly six years ago as a result of our company’s desire to grow our brands and service our needs on our terms,” says Lux Row Master Distiller John Rempe. “Expansion of our facilities represents the next chapter in our evolution, as we continue to fill the growing demand for our products. I’m truly excited to see what possibilities open up when expansion is completed”
The distillery will remain fully operational throughout the construction process. Additionally, all construction work will take place “back of house,” and will in no way impact tours or any other aspects of the guest experience, the company says.
Lux Row tapped architectural firm Joseph & Joseph and general contractor Buzick Construction for the project.
