Michter’s Distillery‘s affiliate Springwater Kentucky Realty completed its purchase of 145 acres in Springfield, Ky., at the heart of the state’s historic Washington County.
“The property offers rich soil and naturally filtered limestone water which are essential to producing the greatest American Whiskey,” said Andrea Wilson, Michter’s Master of Maturation. The first phase of construction, a barrel house for whiskey aging, is scheduled to begin in 2018.
“This acquisition opens up a multitude of exciting possibilities, including farming our own estate grown grain for Michter’s distillation program,” she added.
“This is strategically significant for us as we plan for the future,” said Michter’s Distillery President Joseph J. Magliocco. “It is terrific land in a very special part of Kentucky, and it will complement our operations at our Shively Distillery and our soon-to-open Fort Nelson Distillery in downtown Louisville. The property has natural springs and currently has crops grown on it.”
