Named after the first two Civil War–
era ships to be clad in iron—the USS Monitor and CSS Virginia—Ironclad Distillery
is located in Newport News within view of the battle site. The distillery is housed in the S.W. Holt & Co. building, a 1913 dry goods warehouse, and has been in operation since 2015. Ironclad produces Ironclad Bourbon
, a fine small-batch Virginia bourbon.
