What we refer to today as a craft distillery has been around quite a while. Virginia has a long history of producing fine spirits that dates back to the earliest days of American settlement at Jamestown. Indian maize was first turned in to liquor by an Episcopalian missionary, Captain George Tharpe at a crude distillery set up at Berkeley Plantation. In the 1700’s, George Washington had one of the largest distilleries in America at his plantation at Mount Vernon and at the time of his death, was the largest distillery in the United States
Here at Three Brother’s craft distillery, we look to the past, starting with the heritage of fine whiskey in America from pre-Prohibition times, when whiskey and other spirits were made with ingredients like barley, rye, and corn and not consisting solely of corn meal and sugar. Using these traditional recipes and distilling methods ensures that every bottle produced by our distillery hearkens back to a day when quality beat quantity.
It starts with the use of time honored methods and recipes. Our Rye Whiskey starts with the base recipe George Washington used. We then take locally grown grains and malts and control the process in small batches. This ensures a whiskey with the quality and taste that speaks back to the heritage from which it is made. When you are a small craft distillery, you do a lot of things by hand that larger distilleries can automate. We mash, distill, bottle, and label by hand ensuring quality over quantity. Tie that to a company with a strong sense of identity and love of great whiskey with agrowing market and you have a recipe for both success and a whiskey for the ages.
