KO Distilling

Distillery

KO Distilling was co-founded by college classmates and long-time friends Bill Karlson and John O’Mara in 2013.  This new craft distillery in historic Manassas, VA is both a manufacturing plant and a destination. We make, store, bottle and ship both high-quality clear (unaged) and brown (aged) distilled spirits.  Our products include gin, white whiskey, bourbon, rye whiskey, and other spirits. We are proud to be the 19th operating distillery in Virginia and one of roughly 1,000 (and growing) craft distilleries in the United States. We are also privileged to partner with many other small businesses, suppliers and farmers in the local area.

 

KO Distilling opened its doors to the public in September 2015. Come by and visit us at our facility’s top-notch visitors center. We provide guided tours, tastings, and product and merchandise sales. We are also available to host special events, such as dinners with spirits pairings. Come see how we make our spirits, be part of the local community, perhaps learn something you didn’t know about distilling, and of course have fun.
