LACASSINE – Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne said he is anxiously awaiting the opening of the Louisiana Spirits Rum Distillery here, believing it will be a major tourist attraction not only for the parish but also the entire state.

Dardenne took his second tour of the $8 million facility Wednesday afternoon during his statewide travel celebrating National Tourism Week. In addition to the facility becoming a tourist attraction, he said he also believes it will help turn Jeff Davis Parish (JDP) into a tourist destination.
