About Virginia Black American Whiskey
Released in 2016 Virginia Black is bottled and distilled at MGPI in Lawrenceburg, IN. The Whiskey is a blend of hand selected 2, 3, and four year old bourbons, rich in rye. Bottled at a much lower 40% ABV, it's a smoother, sweeter bourbon whiskey, an intentional effort to attract those who aren’t traditionally bourbon drinkers. It is bottled in a luxurious art-deco inspired glass, with elegant gold detail.

About Virginia Black
Brent Hocking, former mortgage banker, and current CEO of Virginia Black American whiskey, is an award-winning spirits producer best known for creating the original DeLeòn Tequila. Receiver of the Robb Report Spirit of the Year award winner three years in a row, and a back-to-back Grand Champion at the World Beverage Competition in Geneva, Switzerland, Hocking has a very reputable nose for liquor.
Born a preacher's son in Compton, California, Hocking is establishing a rep in the Hip Hop business, neither of which are strangers to the spirits industry. But the southern Cali mogul is cultivating new ties between the two with his eccentric "luxury with an edge" branding approach.
He launched two beverages associated with Hip-Hop Cash Kings, a signature series from Forbes magazine featuring "10 Years of Hip Hop Kings." After founding award-winning DeLeón tequila in 2009, it was sold to industry giant Diageo and rapper Diddy in 2013. Hocking's newest venture is Virginia Black whiskey, which is actually the first step into the Spirits world for his fellow collaborator, award-winning artist Drake, who is quite devoted and personally invested in the brand.
About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
