FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The company behind Four Roses Bourbon is planning another expansion in Bullitt County.

Gov. Steve Beshear’s office says the company plans to build a new bottling facility. The $8 million project is expected to create up to 30 new jobs.

The 60,000-square-foot operation at the Four Roses Bullitt County Warehouse location will contain two bottling lines, bottling support areas and office space. Four Roses expects the facility to be operational by the spring of 2018.

This is the second Four Roses expansion in Bullitt County in the past year. Last September, Beshear and company officials cut the ribbon on the bourbon brand’s new visitor center. The 2,500-square-foot center expects to attract more than 20,000 guests annually.

Four Roses has distilling and warehousing operations in Lawrenceburg and Bullitt County, respectively.
