About VHW Brewers Batch #4 Whisky
The late Dr. George G. Moore was a native Irishman with an incredible passion for single malt whisky and his adopted home Virginia. His Virginia Distillery Company is a union of these two passions, brought to life in 2011. Today the distillery is looked after by George's son Gareth Moore and his wife Maggie. They have continued to preserve and cultivate George’s single malt dream.
Virginia Distillery Company is currently producing an American Single Malt on-site using 100% malted barley from the US and water from Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. This distillery flagship is being aged in ex-bourbon, sherry, and re-toasted wine casks. Virginia’s hot summers and cool winters significantly influence the aging cycle, imparting a distinctive character to the whisky and enabling it to mature faster than its Scottish counterparts.
Their VHW (Virginia-Highland Whisky) series brings together their American single malt and Scotch malt whisky. Distilled from 100% malted barley, the Scotch is married with whisky made on-site in Virginia. This hybrid whisky is finished for several months in various different casks.
VHW Brewers Batch has them trading casks with local breweries such as Three Notch'd Brewing. First, Virginia Distillery sends over their casks so that beer can be matured in them ― this time, the beer was called Stage Road. Then, the casks were sent back to be used for finishing the VHW whisky for 8 to 16 months. The resulting 92-proof whisky is rich and complex with notes of caramel, vanilla, coffee, and cocoa.
