In addition to its own brands, which debuted in 2018, Bardstown Bourbon Company 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 quadruple capacity since its inception in 2016. It now produces more than seven million proof gallons per year, or more than 300 barrels per day, across 40 different mashbills.
Commenting on the news, Mark Erwin, Bardstown Bourbon Company CEO, said: “The bottling facility is the natural next step in our evolution. 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 new bottling facility’s aesthetic, is said to be a continuation of Bardstown Bourbon Company’s modern bourbon brand look and feel.
