Nelson County First Responders Single Barrel

SINGLE CASK: Nelson County First Responders (Coffee Finished)

Released April 1, 2017 (SOLD OUT) 

Virginia Distillery Company is excited to introduce this limited Single Cask, dedicated to Nelson County’s finest.  If you notice charred notes on the label, that’s not a reference to our barrels. In fact, a forest fire raged on the hillside behind the distillery in November of 2016, and we would have been lost without the help of these local teams.
As a thank you to all who serve our home here in Nelson County, the net proceeds from the sale of this whisky will be donated to local First Responder teams.
For this Nelson County cask, we worked with a local roastery, Trager Brothers Coffee, who did a cold brew coffee soak in one of our whisky casks. After removing the coffee, we added our whisky to the barrel and finished it for 18 months, which added notes of cocoa, baking spices, vanilla, and – you guessed it – coffee!
Production: 47.5 cases / 750ML bottles ($68.59). Available at the Visitors Center only.
