Adds 250th newly created job since 2009
Louisville, Ky. (July 23, 2013) – The Sazerac Company, one of the largest family-owned distilling companies in the United States, has just added the 1,000th employee to its operations in Kentucky, which include the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Franklin County, Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown, The Glenmore Distillery in Owensboro, and Sazerac headquarters in Louisville.
In 1992, the Sazerac Company bought Buffalo Trace Distillery, which had suffered a decline in business along with the rest of the bourbon industry. At that time, Buffalo Trace employed only 50 individuals, down from 1,000 following World War II.
Since 1992, Sazerac has made significant progress rebuilding Buffalo Trace Distillery, which now employs 406. Sazerac also acquired other Kentucky assets, The Glenmore and Barton 1792 Distilleries from Constellation Brands in 2009, and established a headquarters for Sazerac in Louisville, also in 2009, while also increasing employment at each location.
Today, business is growing at all four Sazerac locations in Kentucky, with distilled spirits production, bottling, distribution, and tourism key to the organization’s growth. In fact, Kentucky has become a hub for the distilled spirits industry, accounting for 47% of all distilled spirits bottled in the United States.
“The long term economic potential of the distilled spirits industry for Kentucky and bourbon in particular is substantial,” said Mark Brown, Sazerac president and chief executive officer, “In order to realize this potential we continue to call on state and federal legislators to remove punitive and discriminatory taxes on the Kentucky Bourbon industry, specifically the ‘barrel tax’ which does not apply to other spirits like vodka, gin, or rum, and the federal capitalized interest tax on bourbon makers,” Brown applauds Congressman Andy Barr for introducing the Aged Distilled Spirits Competitiveness Act, which would help level the playing field for Kentucky’s signature bourbon industry. “Swift action on these critical issues will help speed further creation of good paying, steady jobs for Kentucky citizens,” stated Brown.
Since 2009, Sazerac has created 250 good paying, reliable jobs. “In a very difficult economy, it has been nice to bring our Kentucky job total to over 1,000 employees in the past 15 years,” added Brown.
About the Sazerac Company
Sazerac is one of New Orleans’ oldest family owned, privately held companies and has operations in New Orleans, Louisiana; Frankfort, Bardstown, Louisville and Owensboro, Kentucky; Fredericksburg, Virginia; Carson, California; Baltimore, Maryland; and Montreal Canada.

Center to Honor Former Employee Glen Richardson
BARDSTOWN, Ky (July 22, 2012)– Barton 1792 Distillery is opening its new Distribution Center today, July 22nd, and will dedicate it to former employee Glen T. Richardson.
The Distribution Center is a 300,000 square foot facility with a storage capacity of one million cases of spirits. Barton 1792 upgraded the facility with a cold room for heat sensitive products, additional dock spaces, and other office improvements.
Glen T. Richardson was an employee in the shipping department of Barton 1792 Distillery for 32 years until he passed away suddenly in March 2013. He was instrumental in the purchase of the new Distribution Center in 2012. Richardson’s family will be on hand for the dedication, and a bronze plaque will be mounted on the outside wall of the Distribution Center bearing his image and name.
“We are glad we are able to honor Glen for his dedication, while at the same time we are pleased to be increasing our business footprint in the Bardstown community,” said Mark Brown, president and chief executive officer of the Sazerac Company, which owns Barton 1792 Distillery.
The Barton 1792 Distribution Center is located at 1010 Withrow Court in Bardstown in the Bardstown Industrial Park. The Distillery’s former distribution center was one third of the size of the new facility. It has been repurposed for bottling operations.
