Lux Row has announced it is expanding distilling operations starting this month. 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. With more than 18,000 square feet, 10 barrel warehouses at capacity and a 43 foot tall by 36 inch diameter Vendome Copper & Brass Company copper column still, Lux Row will have the ability to distill more than 50 thousand barrels of whiskey annually when this expansion is fully completed in 2022.

“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,” said 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.

Lux Row Distillers is using many of the same firms that helped to build the original distillery including  architectural firm Joseph & Joseph + Bravura Architects and general contractor Buzick Construction for the project.

Lux Row Distillers is the home of the Ezra Brooks, Rebel, Daviess County, David Nicholson and Blood Oath bourbon brands.
