Alltech is investing about $24 million in a new Eastern Kentucky facility to help shore up economic development in the area.
Touted by Gov. Steve Beshear and Kentucky Congressman Hal Rogers, the development will expand Alltech’s distillery operations on a 380-acre reclaimed surface mine, and will grow to include aquaculture fish farms and an egg laying operation.
Deirdre Lyons is director of corporate image for Alltech. She says Eastern Kentucky brings back memories of her native homeland.
