KO Distilling of Manassas filled its 1,000th barrel of whiskey.
KO Distilling was incorporated in 2013; the facility groundbreaking was held in 2015. Since then, co-founders Bill Karlsson and John O’Mara have turned KO Distilling into a state-of-the-art production facility and tourist attraction.
After their initial offering of unaged whiskey and gins in 2015, Bill and John produced their first aged spirit, Bare Knuckle American Wheat Whiskey, in November 2016. All KO whiskeys since then have been made with corn, wheat, rye and/or malted barley from local Virginia farms.
