"Brown-Forman announced plans today for a new cooperage
to craft barrels in Decatur, Alabama, in order to meet growing
worldwide demand for Jack Danielís Tennessee Whiskey.

Brown-Forman and Jack Danielís officials joined with Alabama
Governor Robert Bentley in Montgomery, AL, to make the formal
announcement today. The Jack Daniel Cooperage is expected
to be operational in May 2014, and it will eventually employ
approximately 200 workers. It will be the second cooperage
owned by Brown-Forman, which operates another facility in
Louisville, KY, and will double the companyís barrel-making
capacity."
