(AP) Crews have begun construction on a new $4 million visitor center for the Wild Turkey Distillery in Lawrenceburg.

Gov. Steve Beshear was among officials who attended a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday for the facility, which is expected to open in April, ahead of a new 125,000-square-foot packaging facility, which is set to open next fall.

Officials said the center will tell the about the history of the brand, which traces its roots to the 1800s, and broaden Wild Turkey's role in the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, a tourist attraction that highlights six distilleries in the state.

Beshear said the center will be "a wonderful interactive experience" for visitors.
