More bourbon is coming back to Louisville’s historic Whiskey Row.
Gov. Steve Beshear and Mayor Greg Fischer joined company officials July 22 to break ground on the Brown-Forman Corporation (NYSE:BFA, BFB) Old Forester Distillery in downtown Louisville.
Brown-Forman is expected to create up to 20 new jobs and invest approximately $30 million into the project.
“The Kentucky bourbon industry has nearly doubled its workforce, tripled its number of distilleries, and set new modern records for exports and barrel inventories,” said Beshear.
