Founded in 2010, Ragged Branch was created by the desire to establish a bourbon distillery in the Ragged Mountains outside Charlottesville, Virginia. Learning from the best, bourbon artisan Dave Pickerell, taught us the time-honored, old-school methods of producing straight bourbon whiskey. From the beginning, we have been committed to crafting the finest, authentic Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey with no short-cuts. Each bottle is painstakingly distilled and patiently aged at Ragged Branch. The remaining mash feeds our cattle, which shapes the robust character of Ragged Branch Bourbon Beef. This commitment to tradition, patience, excellence, and locality is reflected in the smooth, full flavor of Ragged Branch Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
Our tasting room is located on a knoll overlooking the distillery and barrel barn. It offers sweeping panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Guests can sample our Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskeys, either Wheated or Rye, and signature cocktails, while enjoying a seat by the fire in the tasting room or the breathtaking scene from the covered porch and expansive terrace.
