Cask Selections are available in three unique finishes bottled as single casks. They are made from 100% malted barley, marrying American Single Malt whisky made on-site in Virginia with aged malt whisky from Scotland. Cask finishing for an additional 8 to 12 months deepens the nuance and complexity of each single cask. Each cask is a one time release available only at select retailers.
$1 from the purchase of each bottle will be donated to Hope For The Warriors, a national nonprofit organization in the United States that provides assistance to combat wounded service members, their families, and families of those killed in action.
Cuvée Cask- Raspberry, mocha and baking spice showcase the hallmarks of this cask type, a re-toasted red wine cask.
Sherry Cask- Tart cherry, golden raisins and pineapple meld perfectly together with subtle hints of pecan.
Rum Cask- The islands are calling with hints of tropical fruit and caramel, balanced with a soft creaminess.
Virginia Distillery Company has always been proud to be a part of the Nelson County community and strives to find ways to support local organizations.
Batch 3 of Charity Cask is a Coffee Cask Finished Virginia-Highland Whisky made in collaboration with our good friends at Snowing in Space. They brewed a coffee in our whisky barrel, which they named Whiskee-Ball. Once the barrel was emptied, we took it back and filled it with whisky, which finished in the cask for 14 months.
This year, net proceeds from this cask will benefit the Nelson County Pantry. The Pantry has been a vital part of Nelson County for the past 22 years. They serve between 600 – 900 people in Nelson County every month. It equates to about 250,000 pounds of food per year or just over 20,000 pounds per month. And they do it all through private funding.
We hope you will join us in giving back to the Nelson County Food Pantry and the important work they do for Nelson County. This is a single cask offering and will sell out quickly.
It is only available only at the Visitors Center beginning August 3rd.

Introduction to Journey Cask:
Join us on a distilling adventure as we celebrate our founder’s journey in the creation of Virginia Distillery Company with this new series. The Journey Cask Collection focuses on mentor distilleries from around the world, where the distillery or region was inspirational to our founder Dr. George G. Moore as he set out to make American Single Malt.
This series showcases exclusive single casks of aged single malts from various countries. The traditional name of each region is used to identify the series, a nod to the traditions of the past.
Hibernia: 11 year old Irish Single Malt Whisky
Our first Journey Cask is from George’s homeland, Ireland. Hibernia, showcases an 11 year old single malt from Ireland’s largest independent distillery, situated near where George grew up in County Louth.
We start with an important mentor for our founder, not just in the whisky journey but in the journey of life as well. John Teeling was instrumental in bringing George to the U.S. through a series of events, specifically advocating on George’s behalf for a scholarship to George Washington University in DC. This was to be the start of many journeys for George, and John Teeling remained a close friend and mentor throughout all of it. We honor both George and John with this dedicated cask, sourced from John Teeling’s own Great Northern Distillery. As a blending of our two distilling approaches, we have left the spelling of the whisky without the e, as the Irish typically leave it in.
Bottled at cask strength, on the nose, the whisky showcases aromas of soft caramel and milk chocolate mingled with toasted walnuts and vanilla. The palate evolves with notes of fresh nectarine and apricot merging into candied orange peel, shortbread, butterscotch and a hint of ginger.
This limited release single cask comes in a special collector’s box and decorated bottle. Bottled unfiltered, the true expression of the whisky can be seen. Enjoy this unique single cask this holiday season from your friends at Virginia Distillery Company.
*Journey Cask Hibernia was bottled unfined and unfiltered. This allows the true expression of the whisky to be showcased, as filtration can sometimes modify aromas and mouth feel components. As this is an 11 year old whisky bottled at cask strength, we thought it best to leave it in its natural state. Barrel char particulates may be evident in the whisky. This is perfectly normal in an unfined and unfiltered whisky. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
