Big things keep hoppening at Rabbit Hole Distilling. The distiller broke ground on its $12.5 million distillery, restaurant and tourist destination in early October 2016. A few weeks later they released their first bourbon and rye whiskey made with their recipe at another distillery. This week they achieved another milestone as they joined the iconic Kentucky Distillers’ Association becoming the 36th and newest member of the non-profit trade group that unites and leads Kentucky’s signature Bourbon and distilled spirits industry.
Founded in 2014 by CEO Kaveh Zamanian, the innovative Rabbit Hole campus spans an entire city block in the NULU district of downtown Louisville and will include an on-site restaurant, bar and public event space when it officially opens in the Spring of 2018.

“As its name implies, Rabbit Hole is building a truly modern, vibrant take on our timeless craft with a variety of experiences that Bourbon lovers are sure to enjoy,” KDA President Eric Gregory said. “We applaud their creativity, commend their investment, appreciate their commitment to upholding the integrity of our legendary industry and proudly welcome them to our ever-growing family of Kentucky’s finest distillers.”
“It’s a thrill to be a part of Kentucky’s signature industry,” Zamanian said. “On behalf of everyone at Rabbit Hole, thank you to the Kentucky Distillers’ Association for welcoming us to the major league of Bourbon.”
Rabbit Hole is the KDA’s 26th Craft-level member, aging less than 10,000 barrels a year. Based on Rabbit Hole’s production capacity which includes a 24″ diameter Vendome Copper & Brass Works copper column still, they will quickly move up the size ranks in the association once they are in full production.
