Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery


Welcome to Michter's Fort Nelson Distillery!

Located at 801 West Main Street in the heart of downtown Louisville, Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery is across the street from the Louisville Slugger Museum & Bat Factory and down the block from the Frazier History Museum, which has been designated the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® Welcome Center and serves as the official starting point of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®. Join us for a guided tour and tasting to learn about our “Cost Be Damned” approach to producing the highest quality American whiskeys and enjoy a drink at the world-class Bar at Fort Nelson. Online reservations are strongly recommended, but walk-ins will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.
