Distilleries of Northern Virginia

Just outside the nation’s capital, Northern Virginia is home to America’s first-ever distillery at Mount Vernon, as well as to modern distillers who use local ingredients to craft unique spirits. Building on the region’s historical foundation, the distilleries of Northern Virginia create a variety of spirits, from bourbon and whiskey to flavored moonshine and vodka.

Belmont Farms Distillers

Belmont Farms Distillery

Belmont Farm Distillery, owned by Chuck and Jeanette Miller, was founded in 1988 in Culpeper County. From the beginning, the Millers set out to take their farm grains to glass through fermenting, distilling and aging spirits and bottling them at their farm. Using a 3,000 gallon copper pot still from the 1930’s in Nelson County, Belmont Farm Distillery now produces over 15 different, all natural, farm-raised products including moonshine, Virginia Lightning Corn Whiskey, Kopper Kettle Virginia Whiskey and more.

Murlarkey Distillers

Murlarkey Distilled Spirits

Starting with a meager 23 gallon copper still and a dream, second generation Irish-American cousins Tom Murray and Mike Larkin set out to create a legacy of premium, small-batch spirits. MurLarkey’s handcrafted spirits are Farm to Flask – created from raw, locally-sourced, and gluten-free ingredients with natural fruit and botanical flavoring infusions. Virginia ABC carries a number of MurLarkey’s flavored whiskies, along with their craft whiskey, Imagination Gin and Divine Clarity Vodka.

Falls Church Distiller

Falls Church Distillers

U.S. Air Force veteran Michael Paluzzi and his son Lorenzo Paluzzi opened Falls Church Distillers in 2017. Their distillery, which operates a tasting room with an extensive menu of specialty cocktails, Italian foods and an international wine and beer selection, is a natural outgrowth of the family’s Italian immigrant heritage. Lorenzo’s background in chemistry led him to be the chief distiller and a key part of this father-and-son team. The only Virginia distillery to contain a full bar and restaurant, Falls Church Distillers’ menu offers cocktails such as a Virginia Mule with Church Bourbon and ginger beer.
KO Distillers

KO Distilling

KO Distilling was incorporated in 2013 by lifelong friends Bill Karlson and John O’Mara (the “K” and “O” in KO Distilling). The two met as classmates and cadet midshipmen at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and years later, reunited to create craft spirits with local ingredients using high quality production methods. A Manassas tourist attraction and state-of-the-art production facility, KO Distilling offers tours and tastings, along with a full range of distilled spirits. Initially creating gins and a white whiskey, KO Distilling’s product line now includes bourbon, wheat and rye whiskies.
