Virginia Bourbons

Virginia-made bourbons celebrate Bourbon Heritage Month and Virginia Spirits Month at the same time! Three Virginia distilleries offer handcrafted bourbons: A. Smith Bowman (Fredericksburg), Ironclad (Newport News) and Reservoir (Richmond). Using high-quality local grains, each of these bourbons offers a unique flavor profile and exemplifies Virginia-made excellence.
Ironclad Distillery
Ironclad Bourbon is made from local corn, wheat and rye, along with malted barley. It mellows in the brackish air from the James River, balanced with the sweet caramelized oak sap from small barrels.
Reservoir Distillery
Reservoir Bourbon is crafted in-house, with a 100-percent corn mash bill, trusting the full force of local Virginia corn. The bourbon is aged in small barrels, which allows for faster, comprehensive aging.
A Smith Bowman Distillery
Bowman offers two distinctive Virginia bourbon whiskiesJohn J. Bowman (single barrel) and Bowman Brothers (small batch). Both are hand-crafted and aged for smoothness and complexity.
