Case Study

Rabbit Hole Distillery

Metal Sales Manufacturing Corporation played a key role in the design of the new, $15 million, 55,000 square foot Rabbit Hole Distillery. The extensive use of Metal Sales wall panels lended itself to the modern design both outside and inside. Located in the trendsetting NuLu neighborhood of Louisville, Ky this new open floor plan distillery lets guests see all aspects of the bourbon making process. The bourbon experience is highlighted by the 48 foot tall still and a wide outdoor staircase clad with Metal Sales perforated aluminum panels ushering guests to the Overlook Tasting and Hospitality space above the atrium.

As we often do, our team worked closely with the architect, Douglas V. Pierson of pod architecture + design PLLC, to achieve the vision of Rabbit Hole Distillery owner, Kaveh Zamarian.

Metal Sales contributions to Rabbit Hole Distillery’s modern design were wide-ranging. The distillery features over 13,500 square feet of Metal Sales panels throughout the building.

When the design called for custom panels, Metal Sales delivered with their new Concealed Fastened Empire Series EM1-1653 wall panels. The 24 gauge panels installed vertically and horizontally in Champagne Metallic and Dark Bronze were the perfect solution. The distillery’s stairwell panel is a custom perforated .032” aluminum direct fastened panel that was the perfect accent in Champagne Metallic.

Metal Sales also provided 24 gauge, 12” coverage soffit ceiling panels in Matte Black, Linen White and Champagne Metallic. Interior 24 gauge, 12” coverage wall panels in Dark Bronze and Matte Black completed the modern design.
