The still produced by Vendome Brass and Copper Works, has 19 distillation plates and will be able to produce six gallons of new distillate per minute.

In addition to the still, spirit tanks have been installed and the distillery’s 20,000 barrel capacity warehouse is rapidly taking shape. The warehouse will also feature a four-barrel lift on the north side of the building that will make it easier to transport barrels.
Commenting on the news, Donn Lux, Chairman and CEO of Luxco, said: “This is a momentous day for us at Lux Row Distillers. The still is the heartbeat of a distillery and we have carefully chosen the perfect still for Lux Row. We are looking forward to putting this still to good use soon, making some fine bourbon.”
Lux Row Distillery, which will be the new home to Luxco’s Blood Oath, Rebel Yell, David Nicholson and Ezra Brooks brands, is expected to begin operations in late 2017 and open to the public in the spring of 2018.
