New Orleans distilling firm to open Londonderry facility
On Thursday, officials from the Sazerac Co. announced plans to open a facility at 11 Commerce Ave., the site of the former LeVecke Corp.
“It’s a very small plant for us, but we did feel it was important to establish a presence in New Hampshire,” Preske said Thursday.
Sazerac manufactures such popular alcoholic beverage brands as Buffalo Trace bourbon, Firefly vodka, Corazon tequila and Calypso rum, among other libations.
Once the plant is operational, Sazerac New Hampshire will focus on bottling products using 750 milliliter and liter glass and 1.75 liter plastic bottles, with hopes to also begin manufacturing 375 milliliter bottles in the near future.
“New Hampshire is one of the most sophisticated retailers of wine and spirits in the U.S.,” Sazerac company president and CEO Mark Brown said in a written statement. “We have long sought out the opportunity to manufacture our brands in the state and are excited to soon be doing so.”
