Michter's eyeing Louisville site

From the Louisville Courier-Journal

LOUISVILLE, KY -- Michter’s Distillery is considering establishing a 20,000 square-foot facility here where the company would make whiskeys like single barrel ryes, small-batch bourbons and single-barrel bourbons, according to the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development and Greater Louisville Inc., the metro chamber of commerce.

Michter’s, a division of New York-based Chatham Imports, traces its roots to Pennsylvania, but it is currently distilled and bottled in Bardstown, Ky.

The expansion into Louisville would create 10 jobs paying an average of $20 an hour, including employee benefits, according to Michter’s application for state and local tax incentives.

The company could collect up to $200,000 in tax incentives over 10 years if it goes through with project.

Michter’s could get an additional $180,000 in sales tax rebates on building costs associated with the $7.7 million project.
