Flavorman, a contract beverage development company, on Sept. 27 broke ground on an $8.5 million, 28,000-sq.-ft. addition to its "beverage campus" in downtown Louisville, Ky., to help entrepreneurs and established companies develop new beverage products.

Both nonalcoholic and alcoholic drinks can be developed there, the latter in "Moonshine University," an adjacent building Flavorman renovated in 2012. “With more than 125 food and beverage companies located regionally, businesses can take products from concept to consumer all in one place – Louisville, Ky.," Mayor Greg Fischer said at the groundbreaking.

Construction is estimated to complete during fall of 2022. The expansion should create 30 jobs.

When the addition is complete, the Beverage Campus will house a fully equipped educational distillery, classroom, production facility with a custom bottling line, extensive sensory library and a beverage innovation laboratory.

Flavorman says it has developed more than 70,000 beverage formulations for brands worldwide, including Crispin Hard Cider, Formula O2, Jones Soda, Chiquita, Joia Spirit Craft Cocktails and Go Fast Energy. Moonshine University has hosted hands-on classes for students from all 50 states and 44 countries.
