New Kentucky distillery under construction
Kentucky is about to get another distillery.
Ray Jamieson, a lawyer in Memphis, TN, and his son, Hugh, are building a new bourbon distillery in Fulton County, western Kentucky.
The facility is projected to produce bourbon and other distilled spirits by fall, according to Jamieson. The $770,000 project will employ about 15 people.
Jamieson said he expects a 2,500-barrel bourbon production in the first year and 5,000 barels annually after that.
Plans call for a visitor's center and production building, both of which are projected to be completed in about six months.
