Whiskey distillery bill passes, enroute to Gov. Haslam

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE (Times Free Press) --  A whiskey distillery bill is on its way to the governor after the Senate agreed to a House amendment.

Senators voted 23-6 on the House provision, which they rejected Wednesday.

The bill's sponsor, Sen. Bill Ketron, R-Murfreesboro, apologized for confusion he caused by not adequately explaining the House changes, which put back distance requirements inadvertently taken out by the Senate previously in an amendment.

He also assured colleagues that while distilleries will be able to sell their product on Sundays to visitors who watch operations and want a souvenir, it would not allow regular package stores to open.
