NEWPORT, Ky. (AP) -- A bourbon micro-distillery in the works in Newport will become the seventh stop along the state's Kentucky Bourbon Trail -- and the only one in northern Kentucky.
CEO Mollie Lewis says she hopes that The Nth Degree Distilling attracts about 700 visitors a week for tours when it opens next year. A groundbreaking for was held last month.
Lewis told The Kentucky Enquirer that the "N" has more than one meaning -- it stands for northern Kentucky, Newport and "the Nth degree, which means all-out."
She said the craft distillery will be different from most other bourbon makers in Kentucky in that will reflect a forward-looking enterprise in an urban market.
Larry Ebersold, a former distiller at the Pernod Ricard USA in Lawrenceburg, will be the master distiller.
