Virginia is for Lovers

Spirited Events

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.

Celebrate Virginia as the Birthplace of American Spirits at one of these spirited events throughout the state.
