Copper & Kings to Host Brandy for Butterflies

September 7, 2022

Featuring a monarch tag and release in partnership with Idlewild Butterfly Farm

This summer, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (ICUN) announced the addition of the eastern migratory monarch butterfly to the endangered species list. The delicate and dedicated species is known for its remarkable annual 3,000-mile migration, and during the last 30 years, its population has decreased by more than 80 percent due to habitat loss, climate change and herbicide use.

Since its inception, Copper & Kings Distillery has provided sanctuary to the species with a dedicated 4,300 square foot Monarch butterfly way station lush with critical pollinators, including milkweed which is the only place the monarch lays its eggs.

Copper & Kings will host Brandy for Butterflies, coinciding with the fall migration, to celebrate and raise money for Re-Wilding Louisville, a collaborative organization that funds pollinator gardens at non-profit facilities in Louisville.
