The Kail community is dominated by agriculture , even if its economic importance has declined in recent decades. A majority of the population is now employed in other industries. There are fewer than ten full-time farms. Due to the high altitude of Kail, the place is flood-free. This was the reason for the Hubertus Vallendar distillery to relocate its headquarters from Pomerania to Kail after the flood of the century in 1997 . Kail does not have a local rail connection. The closest stop is Pommern (Mosel) on the Moselle route .
