Virginia Distillery Company is an American Single Malt Whisky distillery located amongst the Blue Ridge Mountains in Central Virginia.
Our American Single Malt Whisky is currently being produced on-site using malted barley from the U.S. and water from Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Ex-Bourbon, sherry and re-toasted wine casks are being used to age our American Single Malt. We expect to release this whisky in three to six years’ time from casking, with a target release date in 2019.
While we wait for our American Single Malt to age, enjoy our Port Cask Finished Virginia-Highland Whisky. This is an aged malt whisky which is brought over from Scotland and married together with whisky made on-site at the distillery in Virginia. The whisky is then cask-finished in Virginia port-style wine barrels for an additional six to eighteen months to add nuances of dried fruit, toffee and dark cocoa.
The Commonwealth Collection offers limited releases of specialty finishes, including Chardonnay Cask Finished Virgina-Highland Whisky (released annually in the spring) and Cider Cask Finished Virginia-Highland Whisky (released annually in the fall).
Our Visitors Center in Lovingston, Virginia is open 7 days a week for whisky tasting and tours.
