Construction of Luxco’s first stand-alone, wholly-owned distillery marks a significant milestone in the company’s history. Luxco currently contract distills its bourbon brands – Rebel Yell, Ezra Brooks and Blood Oath – through relationships with other distilleries.
This new facility will give Luxco 100 percent control of quality and production volume of its bourbon. With its ideal location in Bardstown and picturesque setting, Luxco hopes to establish the distillery as a premier destination on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The distillery gives Luxco a well-defined place around which to center its brands’ heritage, a critical element in attracting bourbon consumers searching for authentic products and experiences.
