The improved 60-acre site, in the village of Relay near Baltimore, includes three new “high speed” bottling lines and upgrades to key production areas, following the eight-month project, the company said earlier today (13 November). The facility currently produces and bottles brands including Jose Cuervo, Captain Morgan and Seagram's. 

"We are creating best-in-class operations that are more efficient, cost effective and environmentally sustainable,” said David Cutter, president, Diageo Americas Supply.

In June last year, the company announced it was cutting 55 jobs at the plant

The facility currently employs 140 people and produces around 11m cases of spirits a year. It was established in 1933 as the first legal distillery in the state of Maryland following the repeal of prohibition.
