Bourbon Release Saturday to the Public!


It’s been a long two plus years for Glen and I in waiting for this moment to arrive. We started with six barrels from NY,  ninety gallons of our unaged corn whiskey from two small stills and unlimited possibility. And then just time. One hot summer into one cold winter. And another summer, another winter.


The day we brought home these barrels, we snapped this picture. The one that Emma is sitting on is her barrel. We are saving it for her to remember and savor this moment. But the other five, we gratefully offer to you. Our first batch, distilled and aged right here in West Virginia.

We are so thankful for all who have visited over the past few years to our barns and patiently waited along with us.

Our Black Draft Straight Bourbon Whiskey is available for purchase starting this Saturday, July 22, here at the distillery and throughout the state in the coming weeks. It is available in a 750ml bottle for $49.99.

Visit us on Saturday to purchase a bottle (or two), from 11am to 4pm, or call 540-686-0100 to make an appointment for pickup service.

Bourbon Release Update


Bottling has begun this week and we can not wait for you to taste our first batch of Black Draft Straight Bourbon! What is so amazing about this bourbon is that it contains the best of our three counties of our wonderful Eastern Panhandle together. Non-GMO corn from Jefferson. Berkeley Springs water from Morgan.  Distilled and aged right here in Berkeley County. A taste is all our own.

We will be announcing very soon when it will be available this month for purchase from the distillery and at your local liquor retailers. We will post updates here on our website, through Facebook, Twitter,  and our voicemail at 540-686-0100.

Thank you so much for your patience and supporting us every step of the way on this journey.
