Inspired by the guiding principle of our founder, to “have the courage of your convictions,” our American Single Malt whisky is a combination of passion for Virginia Distilling Co.'s home in Virginia and their dream to redefine American whisky.
Aged a minimum of four years, this 100% malted barley whisky is matured in former Spanish Sherry casks. 

 46% ABV/92 proof

Virginia Distillery Co. is an American Single Malt whisky distillery located amongst the Blue Ridge Mountains in central Virginia. Courage & Conviction, our American Single Malt whisky, is produced on-site using malted barley from the U.S. and water from Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Sherry, Cuvée, and Bourbon casks are used to age this unique whisky. Our VHW series, made from 100% malted barley, showcases both Old and New World whisky- making. This series marries whisky made on-site in Virginia with whisky from Scotland. Cask finishing adds depth and complexity. Offerings in this series include Port Cask Finished Whisky and Cider Cask Finished Whisky. Our Visitors Center and distillery is located in Lovingston, Virginia.
