Michter's Fort Nelson Distillery

If you plan on making your way through the Bourbon Trail this year, Michter's has got a new spot to add to your list as the company is opening its second distillery and its first tasting room. The Fort Nelson Distillery was first built in 1890 and was recently saved from ruin by Michter's in 2012. The building underwent extensive work, which included the installation of 400,00 pounds of structural steel to help restore the building to its former glory. 

Alongside the whiskey production facilities, Michter's will be opening its first tasting room on the second floor, The Bar at Fort Nelson. The bar will feature a menu with drinks designed by cocktail historian and author David Wondrich, Sevan Araneda, formerly of San Francisco's famed Bourbon & Branch, and Dante Wheat, former bar manager at Louisville's Butchertown Social.
