Pernod Ricard Jefferson’s Distillery

LJC is partnering with Pernod Ricard, Clayco, and Concrete Strategies to design a new carbon-free distillery with 15 warehouses and a Brand Home. The company is collaborating closely with LJC’s design team to enhance its production process while maintaining a strong focus on sustainability. This facility will produce Jefferson’s Bourbon, a boutique bourbon company.

The distillery’s design features large window curtain walls, offering a captivating view of the bourbon production process. Additionally, the site incorporates a fire tank equipped with a diesel pump, ensuring an adequate water supply in the event of a fire or electrical failure.

Pernod Ricard, being a green company, places great importance on environmental consciousness and has set a goal to achieve LEED certification for this distillery. Additionally, the entire facility will operate using only electric power without relying on fossil fuels. This commitment to a fossil fuel-free process for bourbon production sets Pernod apart from industry norms.

The project is currently in the construction document (CD) phase, with construction already underway. The initial focus is on building the warehouses, which will be utilized for tank fabrication and storage. The project also involves collaborating with a branding company to establish the character and goals of the distillery.
