Beverage development company Flavorman is building an $8.5m expansion for its beverage campus in Louisville, Kentucky.

A ceremonial groundbreaking on the site of its new facility expansion at 809 South 8th Street was held this week. Construction is expected to be completed in the fall of 2022.

The project represents an $8.5m investment to scale up Flavorman’s 'Beverage Campus' and better serve demand for their custom beverage development services. The addition will cover 28,000 square feet and connect to the company’s main laboratory. Once complete, it will boost production capacity, expanding Flavorman’s blending, bottling/canning, processing and bulk storage operations; as well as creating 30 jobs.

The project is the latest in a series of expansions at Flavorman in the last few years as the company continues to grow. In 2006, the company rehabbed the existing 24,000-square-foot building at 809 South 8th Street; then six years later purchased a neighboring building to create educational distillery, Moonshine University. In 2018, the company added office space at 827 South 8th Street.

Together, Flavorman and Moonshine University make up the ‘Beverage Campus’ that houses an educational distillery, classroom, production facility with a custom bottling line, sensory library and a beverage innovation laboratory. Flavorman has developed more than 70,000 beverage formulations for brands worldwide, while Moonshine University has hosted hands-on classes for students from all 50 states and 44 countries.
