Rebecca Creek Distillery Plans for $7.5 Million Expansion to Quadruple Capacity
Rebecca Creek Distillery in San Antonio, Texas, one of the largest craft distilleries in the U.S. is about to get bigger. The distillery is moving forward with plans to build a brand-new, $7.5 million, 20,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art distillery that will more than quadruple its current production capability, producing 500,000 cases annually.
“It is our goal to make Rebecca Creek a household name, while retaining our commitment to craftsmanship,” said Steve Ison, founder and CEO of Rebecca Creek Distillery.
Expansion and construction plans are slated for completion in late 2018. The new distillery will feature:
- Texas’ first “Outlaw Country Gallery,” an art gallery and museum dedicated to the pioneers of the country music industry, complete with both traveling exhibits and permanent, one-of-a-kind, original photographs from GRAMMY Award-winning photographer Jim Marshall, including “Willie Nelson’s First Fourth of July Picnic, 1973.”
- A scalable events center with stage and high-tech sound, lighting and acoustics systems for large indoor-outdoor concerts; and,
- A world-class recording studio to host and broadcast Rebecca Creek Radio musicians and to support up-and-coming Texas Country music talent.
“Our primary goal for the new distillery is to increase production, but the secondary goal is to allow visitors to experience and enjoy all that Rebecca Creek has to offer,” said Matt Appleby, vice president of national marketing for Rebecca Creek Distillery. “All of our partners and Texas Country music friends are as excited as we are about the project, as it will be a true collaboration with the best musical minds in the world. We will highlight our great state’s music history, use cutting-edge technology to merge the past with the present, and provide an experience that can only be found at Rebecca Creek Distillery.”
