Heaven Hill Distilleries is to expand another of its facilities in the US.

The spirits company confirmed yesterday (29 March) that it has received the green light from the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority for economic incentives to expand its Bardstown facility in the state.

Late last month, Heaven Hill announced plans to expand its Bernheim Distillery in Louisville, also in Kentucky.

The Bardstown site will benefit from another bottling line, which will handle 200ml, 375ml and 750ml PET bottles exclusively. When the expansion to the bottling house is complete in the second quarter of next year, Heaven Hill said, the company will be able to bottle over 1m additional cases per year at it's the site.

"We are again pleased to be announcing a major capital expansion, necessitated by the growth of both our traditional core brands like Christian Brothers Brandy and Burnett's Vodka as well as the development of cutting-edge, stylish new brands like PAMA Liqueur and HPNOTIQ," said Heaven Hill president Max Shapira.

"It is particularly gratifying that we are able to give back to the communities and bolster the economic infrastructure of both Louisville and our traditional headquarters in Bardstown, underscoring Heaven Hill's growing presence in the state we have called home for over 70 years."

Financial details were not disclosed, but the company noted that it would be a "multi-million dollar" investment.
