Lux Row Distillers Announces $4M Expansion Plans
Enhancements will enable 24-hour operation, boost annual production 75%
ST. LOUIS (Nov. 1, 2021) – Lux Row Distillers – the Bardstown, Kentucky, home of the Ezra Brooks, Rebel, Daviess County, David Nicholson and Blood Oath bourbon brands – will undergo a $4 million expansion beginning in November. 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.
Opened in 2018 Lux Row Distillers has quickly become one of the top US-based independent producers of alcohol beverage products, creating and marketing a wide array of products across all categories. With more than 18,000 square feet, ten barrel warehouses at capacity and a 43-foot custom copper still, Lux Row will have the ability to distill more than 50 thousand barrels of whiskey annually when this expansion is fully complete.
“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 tapped architectural firm Joseph & Joseph and general contractor Buzick Construction for the project.
