The Bulleit Distilling Co. ribbon-cutting event Tuesday, March 14, 2017, in Shelbyville, Ky.

Bulleit Distilling Co. hosted a ribbon cutting in March to formally celebrate the opening of its state-of-the-art modern whiskey distillery in Shelbyville, Kentucky. Governor Matt Bevin and other elected officials joined Founder Tom Bulleit for the ceremony and distillery tour. The distillery, which employs about 30 people on its 300-acre campus, celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. The 300-acre, $115 million distillery can, at full capacity, produce 1.8 million gallons annually, and along with its four barrel houses, hosts the first industrial solar array in Shelby County, which will collect enough energy to run all on-site mobile equipment.
