FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 26, 2015) – Four Roses is expanding again. Gov. Steve Beshear today announced the company plans to build a new bottling facility in Bullitt County.
Four Roses is expected to create up to 30 new jobs and invest $8 million into the project.
“Four Roses is vital to Kentucky’s rich bourbon heritage,” said Gov. Beshear. “It’s exciting to see the company continue to grow its operations, create jobs and contribute to the renaissance of one of the Commonwealth’s signature industries. I want to thank Four Roses for its investment here in Kentucky, and I look forward to seeing this facility in action.”
The new bottling facility at the Four Roses Bullitt County Warehouse location will support the Four Roses Bourbon brands. The 60,000-square-foot operation will contain two bottling lines, bottling support areas and office space. Four Roses expects the facility to be up and running by the spring of 2018.
“Four Roses’ growth in the U.S. bourbon market continues to demonstrate that attention to quality and detail is what the consumer wants in our premium bourbons,” said John Rhea, Four Roses’ COO. “Building this new facility and providing these new jobs here in Bullitt County are exactly what we wanted to do to show our support for our current employees and this community. We want to personally thank Gov. Steve Beshear and Bullitt County Judge- Executive Melanie Roberts for their tremendous effort and support to make this project happen.”
