HONORING A HISTORICAL LEGACY
In 2019 Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery opened its doors after almost 7 years of renovation. An architectural gem in the heart of downtown Louisville, Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery is down the block from the Frazier History museum, which has been designated the official welcome center to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, and across the street from Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. Visitors can enjoy tours and tastings and will have the opportunity to see whiskey produced on the legendary pot still and cypress wood fermenter system from Michter’s Pennsylvania Distillery, which traces its history back to 1753. The second floor of the building features The Bar at Fort Nelson, which offers world class cocktails. Cocktail historian and author David Wondrich consulted on The Bar at Fort Nelson’s classic offerings.
