LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new bourbon distillery is being built in Nelson County.

Luxco is building on a 70-acre site off state Highway 245 in the heart of Bardstown.

The company announced preliminary plans for the distillery late last year. Construction will begin this summer.

When finished, the distillery will have six barrel warehouses and will employ an estimated 34 people.

There will also be a tasting room and event space.

It's expected to be fully operational by late 2017.
