At the center of our latest Frontier Works project is a fully-functional 3D printed cocktail bar that is currently touring cultural hotspots across the country.

Its permanent home will be at the soon-to-be-opened Visitor Experience at The Bulleit Distilling Co. in Shelbyville, Ky.

The event featured 3D-printed cocktails, food and music from top Austin creatives, including Walker Lukens, Hard Proof and Chulita Vinyl Club. Robotics pioneer Benjamin Grimeil was also behind the bar to create cocktails with edible 3D-printed designs.

  • The 3D printed bar was designed by the architecture and design practice FAR, and fabricated by the Machine Histories team
  • It stands at nearly 30ft long x 15ft high and took more than 2,000 hours of labor to complete, excluding the hundreds of hours invested in design and engineering
  • The bar was completed in a little over three months, an impressive feat that usually would take years
  • The one-of-a-kind structure’s intricacy was inspired by the iconic Bulleit Bourbon label and its copper color is reminiscent of the award-winning whiskey
