Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Stuart McWhorter and Tennessee Hills Distillery officials announced Monday that the company will invest $21.3 million to expand by adding a Bristol location to serve as the company’s new headquarters.

The new location will join Tennessee Hills Distillery’s two existing operations in Jonesborough and Johnson City. Through the project, Tennessee Hills Distillery plans to create 45 new jobs over the next five years as the company constructs an automated distillery, which will be housed in the company’s new headquarters on nearly nine acres off U.S. Highway 11W near The Pinnacle shopping center and Interstate 81.
