Study: KY Bourbon Distilleries Have Tripled In Past Two Years

A new study from the University of Louisville said the number of distilleries in Kentucky had tripled in just two years.

Researchers said that during the 24-month span, the state had gone from 10 distilleries to 31 distilleries.

It also said the bourbon sector’s workforce in Kentucky had almost doubled in that same time.

Just two years ago, distilling was a $1.8 billion a year industry.

Researchers said it had since grown to about $3 billion.
