LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A new spirits distillery that produces craft brandy has opened in Louisville.

Copper & Kings celebrated a grand opening ceremony on Monday at its distillery near downtown on East Washington Street. It is owned by Lesley and Joe Heron, who began producing the brandy earlier this year.

Joe Heron says the distillery will be open to public tours. The facility has custom-made pot stills from a Louisville company and repurposed shipping containers that serve as a gift shop and tasting room. It also has an outdoor courtyard and art gallery space for events.

Public tours will begin Nov. 1 and take place on the hour each Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The cost is $10 per person and includes a brandy tasting and souvenir glass.
