Schedule a Distillery Tour

Discover Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery in downtown Louisville. Located in the historic Fort Nelson building on Main Street, this distillery is home to a legendary historic distillation system. Here you will learn about all of the extra steps Michter’s takes throughout the whiskey production process to pursue our goal of producing the greatest American whiskey, from barreling at a lower entry proof, to toasting our barrels before charring and heat cycling our warehouses. Following the tour, you will taste five different Michter’s expressions before heading up to the bar, where your visit will conclude with a cocktail demonstration and a small cocktail sample.

The Bar at Fort Nelson is located on the second floor, The Bar at Fort Nelson features classic cocktails curated by cocktail historian and author David Wondrich as well as modern creations by the bar team.

The Bar features glassware from U.K. producer John Jenkins and an ice program with machines from top global equipment purveyors, including Clinebell, Hoshizaki and Scotsman.
