    With one distillery that will attract tourists to Defoe and a separate warehousing operation setting up in an industrial park, Henry County has recently become attractive to the spirits industry.

    The topic came up during the planning and zoning report during the April 17 meeting, when Judge-Executive John Logan Brent explained the motivation behind the change.
