An informal preview event will be held Friday, July 11 from 5 to 11 p.m. as an unofficial sneak peek for the Louisville community. Live local music from JK Mabry & the Maybes, food trucks and a craft cocktail bar will set up in the courtyard throughout the night. In addition to the free outdoor event, guided distillery tours that include a rooftop tasting are available for $5 per person.

“We field numerous inquiries daily about when we’ll be open for touring and tasting so we decided to just do it,” said owner Joe Heron. “We’ll invite Louisville in a little early to see what we’ve been up to and share some of our enthusiasm. Above all, we want this to be a community asset and not just a tourist attraction.”
The final phase of construction, which will outfit the outdoor courtyard with a fire pit, pig roast, catering prep kitchen and lush landscaping, will finish later this summer. Copper & Kings brandy products are already available in many Kentucky liquor stores and cocktail bars.
