Gray, a fully integrated service provider specializing in engineering, design, and construction, is proud to be making history with Diageo, a global leader in beverage alcohol. The companies partnered on the bourbon distillery and dried distillers grain facility that features an automated distillery process including a granary, fermentation, distillation, and barrel filling in Lebanon, KY.

Diageo recently announced the new 10M proof gallon distillery will be carbon neutral when it begins production in the first half of 2021. Taking its sustainability objectives to an even higher level of commitment, no fossil fuels will be consumed for the bourbon production.


“Gray is proud to play a role in the carbon neutral efforts happening at the Diageo Lebanon facility,” said Stephen Gray, president and CEO of Gray. “Diageo’s commitment to sustainability will no doubt impact and challenge the industry toward advancement.”


Walker Mattox, president of Gray Solutions, a Gray company, adds, “Diageo is pushing the envelope to demonstrate their commitment to the environment. We are supporting their initiatives by implementing controls and automation solutions to maximize operational efficiencies and minimize waste at their new Lebanon distillery.”
