Manassas’s first craft distillery since Prohibition, KO Distilling, is releasing their second brown (aged) spirit, Bare Knuckle American Rye Whiskey, at a public release event on Saturday, June 17 from 12:00 p. m.-7:00 p. m. at their distillery. To mark this special occasion, KO is offering a limited number of commemorative bottles of Bare Knuckle Rye to the general public. Each rye bottle comes with a commemorative label that has been hand-numbered and signed by both Bill Karlson and John O’Mara, KO’s founders. Admission to this event is free. Food and beverages provided by Burnt Ends BBQ and BadWolf Brewing Company will be available for purchase. Live music will be provided by the Rogue Johnsen Trio.

“We are proud to be releasing our Bare Knuckle Rye. It is a locally made and locally sourced spirit, which has aged on-site in charred new American oak barrels for 18 months” says KO CEO Bill Karlson. “Rye is once again a popular spirit. Over the past decade, rye whiskey sales across the country have increased 1,000%. Our Bare Knuckle American Rye Whiskey, which is made with 100% rye grain produced at 90 proof, will compete well in the marketplace and will be enjoyed by rye whiskey consumers.”

KO Distilling is accepting online reservations for their commemorative release. Individuals can reserve bottles for purchase via the KO Distilling website, kodistilling.com, and are encouraged to pick up their bottle at KO Distilling on June 17. Reserved bottles must be picked-up no later than 6:00 p. m. on Sunday, June 18.

By July 1, Bare Knuckle American Rye Whiskey will be on the shelves at 100 Virginia ABC stores. Starting in June, it will also be available at liquor stores, restaurants and bars in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Delaware.

KO Distilling’s facility is both a manufacturing plant and a travel/tourism destination. It offers guided tours, tastings, spirit and merchandise sales, and a fantastic venue for special events, including private functions.
