NASHVILLE—Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty along with Popcorn Sutton Distilling LLC officials today announced the Nashville-based distillery has built a new, craft distillery in Cocke County. Due to increased market demand, the Tennessee whiskey manufacturer will open a new 46,000 square foot facility in Newport and plans to create 36 new jobs over the next five years. "Whether it’s whiskey, cars or guitars, Tennessee’s brand and reputation for high quality craftsmanship is world-renowned," Hagerty said. "Popcorn Sutton Distilling LLC’s decision to invest and expand here in Tennessee speaks volumes about our state’s business climate, which is second to none."For more details, please see the Thursday edition of the Newport Plain Talk.
