FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A northern Kentucky distillery has joined the ranks of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association as the group’s 28th member.

The KDA says Boone County Distilling Co. near Florence started production in October. It says co-owner Jack Wells began developing the distillery three years ago to draw upon Boone County’s rich distilling history.

Wells is a longtime northern Kentucky resident who owns a coal export company.

The distillery’s tag line, “Made by Ghosts,” harkens to the early pioneers who crafted spirits in Boone County more than 100 years ago.

The new distillery is 5,000 square feet set on 2.5 acres. It includes a 500-gallon pot still, four fermenters and a small bottling line with a capacity of 250 barrels a year. Barrels will be stored in a steeling building behind the distillery.
