Demand is up, so Brown-Forman's Jack Daniels distillery in Moore County, Tennessee is set build two barrelhouses and expand a bottling faculty in Lynchburg. This new expansion comes after a $103 million expansion three years ago.
"Jack Daniel’s is a Tennessee tradition that was born in one of Tennessee’s smallest counties and has grown into a globally recognized brand. That says a lot about the quality and commitment of Moore County’s workforce,” Governor Bill Haslam said.
Tennessee's financial role in the investment has not been announced. Economic development officials said the company will likely receive a grant, with the grant proposal going before the state's funding board in the coming months.
Brown-Forman, owner of the Jack Daniels brand, reported $684 million in net income last year and employs about 4,400 workers.
