September is Spirits Month - #VASpiritsMonth

September is Virginia Spirits MonthVirginia 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 (that’s a lot of hooch).

Virginia now boasts 45 distilleries that are making some of the finest whiskey, bourbon, vodka, moonshine, and liqueurs in the United States. So pour yourself a finger (or two) and raise a glass to Virginia spirits!
