Buffalo Trace Distillery breaks ground on new facility

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Buffalo Trace Distillery broke ground Wednesday on a new distribution center in Frankfort.

It's one of three planned distillery expansions by Buffalo Trace's parent company, Sazerac. The other two expansions will be the Glenmore Distillery in Owensboro and the Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown.

Company officials say they're responding to the growing demand for spirits. "I think that people are discovering bourbon and bourbon's been growing over the last ten years by significant numbers," said Jeff Conder, Vice President of Marketing for Sazerac.

The company is investing a total of $70 million and creating 110 jobs as part of the expansions.
