Rare Breed Distilling has announced plans to construct a new 20,000-s.f.
barrel storage warehouse at its Wild Turkey distillery in Lawrenceburg. The new project will add to Wild Turkey’s storage capacity for its maturing whiskey products and will entail a nearly $2.3 million investment in the commonwealth.
In 2007, Wild Turkey, a manufacturer of several Kentucky straight Bourbon whiskey products as well as other distilled spirits offerings, announced plans to build a new and larger distillery on its site in Anderson County to keep pace with projected increases in the global demand for the plant’s products. The new distillery is currently under construction and scheduled to begin operation in late 2010.
For the new warehouse project, Rare Breed Distilling LLC has been approved by the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority for tax incentives up to $40,000 under the Kentucky Enterprise Initiative Act (KEIA). KEIA allows approved companies to recoup Kentucky sales and use tax on construction and building costs.
