KO Distilling


10381 Central Park Drive, Manassas, VA; 571.292.1115

Two distillers, Bill Karlson and John O’Mara, bring their shared vision for artisan bourbon, whiskey, gin, vodka and rum to life on September 12th. KO Distilling distributes their quality distilled spirits to restaurants, pubs and liquor stores in the Virginia, Washington DC and Maryland area with national distribution to follow at a later date. An automated control system makes the KO facility stand out from other distillers. Co-founder John O’Mara said “it was essential to automate the physically demanding and repetitive processes of the plant to allow a keen focus on the most important aspects of creating great tasting distilled spirits.” In addition to creating a product line of craft distilled beverages at the 12-thousand square foot facility, KO Distilling has a major visitor’s center for tours, taste-testing, special events, and product sales.
