Michters Distillery & Tour Center

Joseph & Joseph Architects is restoring this 4-story historic building in Louisville’s Historic Main Street District, which will be home to Louisville’s newest urban bourbon distillery. This project includes extensive structural modifications to allow for a fully functioning distillery. Included in the design are two replica 18th century pot stills, fermenting tank, barrel filling, a tour mezzanine through the distillery, barrel storage area, bottling line, gift shops and tasting area.

The tour experience will wind throughout the distillery, educating the visitor about each step, from grain handling through barrel storage and bottling. Throughout the facility there will be interactive exhibits that will allow visitors to learn about each step of the bourbon distillation.

Joseph & Joseph also designed Michter’s new 65,000-sq.-ft. production facility (above, right) in Shively, Kentucky.
