The Brewers Batch Virginia-Highland Whisky is offered under Virginia Distillery Company’s Virginia-Highland Whisky series. Each batch features finishing casks sourced from local breweries, such as Three Notch’d Brewing, a Central Virginia favorite.
A true collaboration, each partner brewery uses casks from us to age their beer in, and then we take the casks back for use in finishing for an additional 8 to 16 months. Three Notch’d Brewing created a Wee Heavy style beer especially for this collaboration called “Stage Road”. In this case, the brewery used Virginia Distillery Company’s whisky casks to age the beer for a number of months and Virginia Distillery Company took the barrels back for finishing.
The Brewers Batch Virginia-Highland Whisky is made from 100% malted barley and showcases both Old World and New World whisky making. Virginia Distillery Company marries whisky made on-site in Virginia with whisky from Scotland. A focus on cask finishing adds depth and complexity.
