BARDSTOWN, Ky. (AP) - A new distillery being built in the heart of Kentucky bourbon country has taken a big step toward the day when whiskey starts flowing.

The Bardstown Bourbon Co. had its 50-foot-tall still installed Thursday. The stainless steel still was delivered in one piece. A crane lowered the still into the center of the building.

The distillery is scheduled to begin operations by this September in Bardstown.

The company says the new still’s design will allow visitors to watch the whiskey moving through the distilling process.

The distillery is being built in a town that proclaims itself as the world’s bourbon capital.
