KO produces seven different products including a line of Battle Standard 142 gins and a line of Bare Knuckle Whiskeys. The distillery offer tastings of our spirits, tours, bottle sales, special events and more right here in their KO Distilling Tasting Room and Banquet Hall.
One thing we love (besides the taste) is that 100% Virginia-based grains are used in all of their whiskeys including the Bare Knuckle American Wheat Whiskey, Bare Knuckle American Rye Whiskey, and Bare Knuckle Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
Here’s how to make the cocktail: fill a tall glass half full with ice and add two dashes of Angostura bitters. Pour in 2 ounces of KO’s Bare Knuckle Straight Bourbon Whiskey and 3 ounces of ginger beer. Stir, add more ice, then spritz with a lime wedge and garnish with lime slices.
