The Irish whiskey brand Bushmills has announced plans to build 29 new aging warehouses near its County Antrim site.
The distillery recently filed a request for project approval with a local government council. According to the application, as reported by the Belfast Telegraph, new warehouses will be built over the course of more than a decade. The plan calls for $3.5 million in capital investment every year for 10-15 years.
The applications also includes plans for a new “world-class” tourism and visitor centre.
This comes a year after the brand’s owner Jose Cuervo announced a $36 million expansion of the Bushmills distillery. Bushmills already has received approval for this project, which the company says will “effectively double production capacity.”
This comes at a time when Irish Whiskey is booming in the U.S.
