BARDSTOWN, Ky. — The Bardstown Bourbon Company plans to open a new bottling facility which opens the door to 25 new jobs, the company said in a news release. 

The new 47,000 square foot bottling facility will be adjacent to the distillery and recently opened Visitors Center on Parkway Drive in Bardstown, the news release states. The spacious addition will allow workers to produce hundreds of thousands of cases of distilled spirits per year.

They expect to add the new jobs when construction is completed in spring 2021.

“The bottling facility is the natural next step in our evolution,” said Bardstown Bourbon Company CEO Mark Erwin. “Currently, both our brands and our collaborative distilling 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.”

The company debuted its own brand in 2018 and now produces custom whiskey for 27 customers, including some of the most well-known brands in the world. The success of its Collaborative Distilling Program has enabled the distilling team to produce more than seven million proof gallons per year, or more than 300 barrels per day, across 40 different mashbills.
