Jim Beam asking incentives for Louisville facility

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - -

Jim Beam is asking for state incentives to bring an Urban Stillhouse to downtown Louisville.

The attraction is proposed for Fourth Street Live, the city's entertainment and dining district. Jim Beam already has the American Stillhouse at its distillery in Clermont outside Bardstown.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1vxJGTc ) says the distiller's application for preliminary approval for up to $1.3 million in incentives goes before the Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority on Wednesday. The Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet says the company is proposing a $5.2 million investment.

Downtown Louisville is home to the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. Several other attractions are planned or in the works, including Old Forester, Angel's Envy, Michter's and Peerless.
