KOVAL’s state-of-the-art production distillery provides a fully immersive experience for craft spirit enthusiasts, all under one roof. Learn about the KOVAL grain-to-bottle distillation process in a weekly tour, practice the art of mixology in cocktail classes led by industry experts, or sit back and relax with a cocktail in the modern, sun-soaked KOVAL Tasting Room.
