Pure mountain limestone water, local farm sourced grains that we meticulously select, are critical to the slow, deliberate small-batch distillation process. We use pot stills and only the best white whiskey (no heads or tails) goes into new charred barrels.
The art of handcrafting fine American spirits does not come easily. It requires patience, dedication, and respect for the long and colorful heritage of whiskey making. Our distillery was founded on these principles, and we work tirelessly to uphold them. The result is unsurpassed quality and character in all of our spirit products.
Our distillery stands high an a hill overlooking Davis Valley in Southwestern Virginia, USA, on the edge of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and atop a bountiful supply of pure mountain limestone water. This water is not just an ingredient in our whiskeys. It is their foundation, providing a canvas for the art of our distillers.
In the regions surrounding our distillery, farmers grow the grains that we meticulously select for the traits and flavors they impart. This local sourcing and careful selection practices are the first steps in our slow, deliberate and meticulously controlled small-batch distillation process.
While we utilize the latest technologies at every stage in our production, we adhere to the tried-and-true principles and practices of more than two centuries of whiskey-making in this region of America. The colorful and robust heritage of crafting fine spirits comes alive in the aroma and taste of every whiskey we make.
