US: Heaven Hill re-opens expanded distillery

By | 5 June 2008

Kentucky-based Heaven Hill Distilleries has re-opened its newly expanded Bernheim Distillery.

With increased demands both domestically and internationally for Bourbon and other American whiskeys, the company said today (5 June) that it has increased the distillery's production capacity by 40%. 

The expansion, which will eventually create 15 new jobs, has increased both the square footage and the output of the distillery, positioning the company well for the expected worldwide growth projected over the next five years in the American whiskey category, the company said.

"We are both proud and excited to be completing this major expansion to our Bernheim Distillery facility in Louisville," said Heaven Hill president Max Shapira.

"This investment in the future of our company is true evidence of our confidence in the economic vitality of the community, and of our confidence in our industry, our brands and our business."

Heaven Hill's portfolio includesEvan Williams Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Whaler's Rum, Burnett's Gin and Vodka, and Dubonnet Aperitif.
