Lux Row Distillers to Undergo $4 Million Expansion


November 2, 2021

Lux Row Distillers – maker of the Ezra Brooks, Rebel, Daviess County, David Nicholson and Blood Oath bourbon brands – will undergo a $4 million expansion. Construction is set to begin in November.

When completed in late 2022, the expansion will allow the Bardstown distillery, which opened in 2018, to operate 24 hours per day and increase its capacity by 75 percent.

With more than 18,000 square feet, ten barrel warehouses at capacity and a 43-foot custom copper still, Lux Row will have the ability to distill more than 50 thousand barrels of whiskey annually when this expansion is fully complete.

“Lux Row Distillers broke ground nearly six years ago as a result of our company’s desire to grow our brands and service our needs on our terms,” Lux Row Master Distiller John Rempe said in a news release. “Expansion of our facilities represents the next chapter in our evolution as we continue to fill the growing demand for our products. I’m truly excited to see what possibilities open up when expansion is completed.” 

The distillery will remain fully operational throughout the construction process. Additionally, all construction work will take place “back of house” and will in no way impact tours or any other aspects of the guest experience.

Lux Row hired architectural firm Joseph & Joseph and general contractor Buzick Construction for the project.
