Brown-Forman acquires land for barrel warehouses

Brown-Forman Corporation purchased 117 acres of land on Georgetown Road (Ky. 341), where 12 Woodford Reserve bourbon barrel warehouses will be built over the next 13 to 14 years. Brown-Forman purchased the land for $2,308,070 from Homer Michael Freeny Jr., acting as trustee of the Homer Michael Freeny Jr. trust, according a July 12 deed filed in the Woodford County clerk's office. The 90,000 square-foot Woodford Reserve warehouses will house up to 66,000 barrels of bourbon - about 800,000 barrels when all 12 warehouses are built. The warehouse use for the 117 acres of A-1 (agricultural) land, located north of Midway's I-64 interchange, was recommended by the Agricultural Advisory Review Committee in April. The Board of Adjustment then approved a conditional-use permit in May, and the Planning Commission approved a final development plan for 12 bourbon barrel warehouses in June.
