Beam Suntory Investing in New Clermont Distillery

By August 25, 2019Top News

Beam Suntory is breaking ground on the Fred B. Noe Craft Distillery, as announced in July. The new distillery is part of a larger $60 million investment to reestablish the James B. Beam Distilling Co. in Clermont, which encompasses the production operations for the flagship Jim Beam brand, as well as small-batch brands like Booker’s, Baker’s, Basil Hayden’s and Knob Creek, and “next-generation” brands such as Legent and Little Book. Named for seventh-generation Master Distiller Fred Noe, the facility will serve as the home for small-batch bourbons, operate as a functional production facility to explore new fermentation and distillation techniques under eight-generation Master Distiller Freddie Roe, and offer a visitor experience to guests.
