Last month, the excited ring of a merchant ship
bell signaled the completion of
KO Distilling's
$900,000 expansion. This landmark development
was made possible in part by a $25,000 grant
from the Virginia Governor's Agriculture and
Forestry Industries Development (AFID) Fund
and a matching grant from the City of Manassas.
"This is an exciting day for the KO Distilling
family, our customers, and our suppliers," says
distillery co-founder Bill Karlson. "Thanks to the
support of the state and local governments,
we will now be able to triple our production."
Distillery co-founders Bill Karlson and John
O'Mara, both U.S. Merchant Marine Academy
graduates who served in the U.S. Navy Reserve,
established KO Distilling in 2013. Their distillery
is one of 50 in the state of Virginia, and since
its inception has become a state-of-the-art
production facility offering a portfolio of small
batch whiskeys and American-style gins. KO
Distilling also does its part in supporting the
local agri-economy by sourcing corn, wheat,
and malted barley from local Virginia farms.
Thanks to the distillery's new 30-foot continuous
column still, the grain purchased from these
farms will increase from 100 tons to nearly 400
tons annually. This considerable increase in
volume is expected to yield around 800 barrels
of spirits per year, up from 225 barrels.
Other highlights of the expansion include six
new 1,000-gallon fermentation tanks, a new
1,000-gallon Vendome mash tun, larger grain
silos, and a high-capacity boiler and chiller
system. Guests can also enjoy the unique
enhancements made to KO's Distillery Store
and tasting room. "Distilled spirits is a volume
industry, and until recently, our production has
been limited to a batch approach," says John.
"Our new column still enables continuous
distillation, and as a result, we will be able to
produce more and keep up with the increasing
demand for our award-winning portfolio." To
