A Highland-style Whisky blend that underscores tart apple notes.

The Blue Ridge Mountains of central Virginia are better known for Moonshine and renegade distilleries. Virginia Distillery Company is changing all that. The late Dr. George G. Moore moved arrived in Virginia from Ireland in 1970 where he raised his family and dreamed of making Whisky. In 2011, that dream become a reality when he founded Virginia Distillery Company with his wife, son, and daughter-in-law — who continue to run the operation. They currently have four Malt Whiskies in their portfolio, with another specially-sourced and aged Single Malt version due in 2020.

Cider Cask Finished Highland Whisky was the second product release from Virginia Distilling Company. There are a few Hard Cider makers in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and for this release they have contracted with two of them — Potter’s Craft Cider and Buskey Cider — to acquire their used Cider barrels to finish their blend of Scottish and Virginia Single Whiskies. But since Highland-style Malt Whisky lends itself to apple and pear flavors naturally, the use of the Cider casks does not so much alter the flavor profile as it emphasizes that aspect of the natural character.

Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
