An all-American spirit

In the vast and diverse landscape of the United States, the distilled spirits market has seen remarkable growth and transformation over the years.

Pouring Kentucky bourbon

The impact of Kentucky on the distilled spirits market is palpable across the entire country. Bourbon’s popularity has soared, becoming a symbol of American craftsmanship and heritage. Iconic brands like Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, and Wild Turkey have become household names, resonating with consumers far beyond the state’s borders. Tourists flock to Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail, a collection of distilleries that offer a glimpse into the centuries-old tradition of bourbon-making, fuelling a robust bourbon tourism industry.  

In the ever-evolving landscape of American spirits, Briggs of Burton has been an integral part of the journey for the past four decades. With roots firmly planted in North America, we’ve played a pivotal role in the growth and success of the distilling industry.

Our dedicated team, operating in Kentucky, brings forth a wealth of experience and engineering excellence. Their mission? To deliver large Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) projects that not only meet but exceed expectations. But our specialisation goes beyond the ordinary – it lies in the art of Site Masterplanning and Front-End (FE1-3) Design Studies.

Our commitment to being local to our customers is what sets us apart. It’s not just about being in the right place; it’s about understanding the unique challenges and opportunities that each region offers.We’ve been instrumental in supporting major Bourbon Whiskey producers like Jim Beam and Heaven Hill in their quest to expand production.

Through intelligent Site Masterplanning and comprehensive feasibility studies, we’ve helped these industry leaders make informed decisions. We’re not just engineers; we’re partners in progress, guiding the path to sustainable growth.

So, as you raise a glass of Bourbon Whiskey with your friends and family, take a moment to reflect on the hidden ingredient behind its excellence – the collaborative spirit and innovation of Briggs of Burton.
