Virginia Distillery Courage and Conviction Single Malt Whiskey....$65.99
The late Dr. George G. Moore had a great passion for single malt whisky and his adopted home in Virginia. A native Irishman, George came to the U.S. in the 1970’s to seek new opportunities. In 2011, after many years of building successful businesses in both the U.S. and Ireland, George finally had the chance to combine his two passions when he started Virginia Distillery Company. Today, George’s wife, Angela Moore and their son, Gareth Moore, along with his wife, Maggie Moore, have taken the helm to continue building George’s dream. “Have the courage of your convictions,” was a saying George often repeated to friends and family. His credo became our core principle and the name of our newest American Single Malt whisky line, Courage & Conviction
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL
• Made with 100% malted barley. • Aged for a minimum of 3.5 to 4 years in Bourbon, Sherry, and Cuvée casks. • We are one of only a handful of distilleries in the world to use these unique Cuvée casks, a profile developed by the late Dr. Jim Swan. • The hot summers and cool winters of Virginia make this American Single Malt incredibly distinct. • The wildly varied climate allows our whisky to age at a faster rate than our counterparts in Scotland.
TASTING NOTES • With notes of caramel and butterscotch, our flagship American Single Malt evolves on the palate with hints of dark dried fruit, raspberry, cocoa, barrel spice and vanilla. • Its finish is creamy and exceptionally smooth.
