Wednesday, February 17, 2016

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A $140 million expansion plan for the Jack Daniel Distillery has been announced to construct two new barrelhouses and modify the bottling factory, expanding their bottling and shipping capacity.

The Jack Daniel Distillery underwent a separate expansion less than three years ago which included the addition of stills, barrel warehouses and related infrastructure.

“The bourbon and American whiskey category is booming, and we appreciate the support of our Tennessee state and economic development officials as we work to meet global demand for Jack Daniel’s,” said Larry Combs, SVP General Manager Jack Daniel’s Supply Chain. “We are especially proud that this second expansion announcement comes as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Jack Daniel Distillery, America’s Oldest Registered Distillery.”

In addition to the new barrelhouses and bottling facility modifications, the current expansion will also involve renovations to the visitor center to support increased tourism and enhance the visitor experience. Last year, the distillery received more than 275,000 guests from around the world.
