Virginia is the Birthplace of American Spirits—the first batch of whiskey was distilled right here in 1620. From there, George Washington went on to be the biggest producer of Virginia whiskey during his time, producing more than 11,000 gallons in 1798 alone. Sample just a small taste of this history when you visit a Virginia distillery for tastings, then take a tour of the facilities that create these incredible spirits to hear about the complex processes behind the product.

Virginia now boasts 45 distilleries that are making some of the finest whiskey, bourbon, vodka, moonshine, and liqueurs in the United States.
