NEW DISTILLERY — Diageo last month announced plans to build a new distillery in Kentucky. The $115 million facility will be located on 300 acres in Shelby County, about 30 miles east of Louisville, and will include six barrel storage warehouses. A variety of Diageo bourbon and whiskey brands would be distilled at the facility, which will have a production capacity of 750,000 cases per year. The project is still subject to local approval.
