In a few years, an empty Owensboro lot will be full of bourbon, thanks to a local distillery's expansion.

Glenmore Distillery broke ground on its new distribution center on E. 4th St. today. It's one of three expansions the company is starting at facilities across the commonwealth. The others are in Frankfort and Bardstown.

Company officials say they'll hire an additional 20 workers.

"We're constrained here right now," said Sazerac Vice President of Manufacturing Jeff Conder. "We're storing in multiple locations. It's going to give us the opportunity to get all that housed in one location, and also give us the opportunity to expand much greater."

The company will also buy newer equipment and make improvements to the distillery's bourbon warehouses.
