Four Roses Distillery LLC has announced that it will invest over $23 million to construct new warehouses in Coxs Creek. The work is expected to be completed by 2024 and will increase bottle storage and create new job opportunities in Bullitt County.
Leaders at Four Roses will build 17 warehouses totaling more than 776,000 square feet to support the continued growth of the Lawrenceburg-based distillery. The investment comes in response to increased demand for the company’s bourbon throughout the United States. Four Roses currently employs 137 people in Kentucky, including 20 at an existing warehouse in Coxs Creek.
“We’re excited about the growth of Four Roses and to have the capacity to bring our Bourbon to more whiskey-lovers around the country, but we’re even more excited about the growth of Kentucky’s bourbon industry,” said Ryan Ashley, chief operating officer for Four Roses Bourbon. “We look forward to welcoming new members to the Four Roses team with this expansion who will help us continue to show that the best bourbons in the world come out of this state.”
Four Roses has roots dating back to the mid-19th century in Georgia, with the company producing bourbon in Kentucky since 1888. The distillery operated along Louisville’s Whiskey Row until eventually relocating to Lawrenceburg in the 1960s, where the company remains dedicated to producing award-winning bourbons.
