Virago Spirits is a family-owned, family-operated craft distillery, based in Richmond, VA, focusing on classically inspired, creatively interpreted spirits – in particular rum, gin, brandy, and herbal liqueurs.
Virago is a Latin term that references heroic women of extraordinary character. Those who demonstrate the strength, courage, determination, and vision to pursue the impossible. And, it is this spirit – the courage to transcend traditional norms and to pursue the unexpected – that inspired us. Our goal is to distill spirits that capture this theme and to attract customers that adopt this mantra in everyday life.
At Virago Spirits, our production philosophy blends a deep respect for time-honored, traditional production techniques with New World creativity, ingenuity and innovation. We distill our spirits on a vintage, direct-fire, 2,500-liter Charentais-style alembic still – one of only a few operating in the United States. The process is laborious and slow and requires significant patience, skill and attention-to-detail. The results, however, are spirits and liqueurs of uncompromising quality, balance and depth of flavor. Stop on by and see for yourself.
