The Bardstown Bourbon Company is a self-described “Modern Distiller of the American Spirit.” Through the $25 million destination development with a Napa Valley-style campus, the Bardstown company offers an educational experience, tours and tastings, integrated visitors center, event space, and eventually a restaurant and boutique hotel.

Site utilities included sanitary and domestic water. Lyons Company also completed the Still Addition, the Fermenter Addition, the Visitor Center Expansion, and the Warehouse Visitor Center Addition.
