Plans in the works for bourbon distillery in Henderson

Posted: Updated:
HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) -

The bourbon distillery project is in the very early stages but it has businesses like Commonwealth Kitchen and Bar, also known as CKB, in downtown Henderson buzzing.

Jason Girard is the guy who wants to open up the micro distillery. 

He's a master chef and wine distributor from the Chicago area-but his family is from Henderson County and he wants to open something up there.
 
He's working with 'kyndle' and the state to get this started. 

CKB co-owner Mark Logan thinks it's a great idea. 

"Kentucky is well known for the bourbon and the bourbon trail," says Logan. "Now a lot of the distilleries are opening locations on main street in Louisville. To have something more regional in our area would be fantastic."

Jason will be in town this weekend looking at possible locations. 

We've been told it will be in the city.
