Heaven Hill Distilleries will hold a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday morning to mark completion of a multi-million dollar expansion project at its Bernheim Distillery in Louisville, KY.
The project expanded distillery size and capacity by 40% and is expected to add what the company calls "a significant number" of new workers to the 34 already employed there.
It will enable the company to meet projected demand for its Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, Old Fitzgerald, Heaven Hill, Rittenhouse Rye and Bernheim Wheat whiskey brands.
Heaven Hill, founded in 1934, is the nation's largest independent, family-owned marketer and producer of distilled spirits products. Aging in its facilities is the second-largest holding of Kentucky whiskey in the world.
