BARDSTOWN, Ky. (Nov. 22, 2016) — Heaven Hill Distillery, the world’s second-largest holder of aging Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, on Saturday held a grand opening for its new Cox’s Creek warehouse.
With the expansion, Heaven Hill Distillery now holds more than 1.2 million aging barrels across Jefferson and Nelson Counties. The Cox’s Creek Warehouses have seven floors and cover 40,000 square feet, making them the largest warehouses permitted by code in Kentucky. The 175 acre site will hold in excess of 660,000 barrels after all development is complete.
A commemorative barrel was signed by Heaven Hill employees and local dignitaries, and then rolled into Warehouse Two as the first to fill the latest warehouse.
