Gruppo Campari is to build a US$44m bottling plant at its Wild Turkey Bourbon Distillery in the US.

The facility, which is set to open in the autumn of 2013, will provide full bottling and packaging for all of Gruppo Campari’s US-distilled spirits brands, including Wild Turkey and Skyy vodka, the firm said today (23 February). The Commonwealth of Kentucky will contribute $2.35m to the plant's construction costs.

“This is a major milestone for the Wild Turkey distillery and two of Gruppo Campari’s biggest growth engines,” said group CEO Bob Kunze-Concewitz. "This gives us the ownership of the full production process for our Wild Turkey brands - from distilling to aging to bottling - all in one location."

In 2006, Wild Turkey's previous owner, Pernod Ricard, ceased bottling on-site at the distillery. Campari said today that reinstalling packaging facilities there will save costs and improve flexibility by shortening the supply chain. 

Last year, Campari doubled the Wild Turkey distillery's capacity, to 11m proof gallons of spirit. The move cost $50m.
