The announcement was made Tuesday as Bluegrass Bottling broke ground on the company’s new Lancaster bottling facility, which will create 27 new full-time positions with a $6.25 million investment.

In August 2022, Bluegrass Bottling announced a 50,000-square-foot bottling facility on a 98-acre site at 51 Poor Ridge Pike in Lancaster, where the company will operate under the name Poor Ridge Distillery.

The project will also more than double the company’s storage space to a total of 49,000 square feet.
