Batch 3 of Charity Cask is a Coffee Cask Finished Virginia-Highland Whisky made in collaboration with our good friends at Snowing in Space. They brewed a coffee in our whisky barrel, which they named Whiskee-Ball. Once the barrel was emptied, we took it back and filled it with whisky, which finished in the cask for 14 months.
This year, net proceeds from this cask will benefit the Nelson County Pantry. The Pantry has been a vital part of Nelson County for the past 22 years. They serve between 600 – 900 people in Nelson County every month. It equates to about 250,000 pounds of food per year or just over 20,000 pounds per month. And they do it all through private funding.
We hope you will join us in giving back to the Nelson County Food Pantry and the important work they do for Nelson County.
Cask Selections are available in three unique finishes bottled as single casks: Rum, Cuvée and Sherry. These whiskies are made from 100% malted barley, marrying American Single Malt whisky made on-site in Virginia with aged malt whisky from Scotland.
Cask finishing for an additional 8 to 12 months deepens the nuance and complexity of each single cask. Each cask is a one time release available only at select retailers.
$1 from the purchase of each bottle will be donated to Hope For The Warriors, a national nonprofit organization in the United States that provides assistance to combat wounded service members, their families, and families of those killed in action.
