“We are so proud to work with the Jefferson’s Bourbon team and help them create some of the finest products in the world,” said David Mandell, CEO of Bardstown Bourbon Company. “Jefferson’s bourbons and whiskeys are not only exceptional, but they are also innovative and extremely creative, which makes them a perfect fit for our Collaborative Distilling Program.”

Once complete, the distillery will have a capacity to produce 6 million proof gallons. The expanded distillery is expected to be fully operational by June 2018.
