Luxco names US$35m site Lux Row DistillersBy Amy Hopkins
Work is progressing on Luxco’s new US$35 million Kentucky distillery, which has been named Lux Row Distillers and is on-track for completion in the fourth quarter of 2017.
The Rebel Yell, Ezra Brooks and Blood Oath Bourbon owner broke ground on its first standalone distillery in May this year. Luxco currently outsources liquid for its Bourbon brands from third party producers.
Luxco has now revealed that the distillery and company managing all whiskey production will be called Lux Row Distillers.
Located in Nelson County on a 70-acre site, the distillery will include six barrel warehouses, a tasting room and an event space. Once completed, Lux Row Distillers will join the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
“We have worked diligently to find the perfect and most inspiring name for the new distillery and we are excited to have landed on the name Lux Row Distillers,” said Donn Lux, Luxco chairman and CEO.
“We wanted the distillery, which represents a new chapter in our family and company evolution, to incorporate aspects of the Lux family name, the scenic property we are located on and the Bourbon heritage of the area.”
The distillery is being built alongside an existing house on the property, which is registered as a National Historic Place.
