Smith River Spirits

Proudly distilling pure, award winning spirits in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains since 2019

Beginning in 2019, Smith River Spirits has proudly distilled pure Apple & Wine Brandy in Ridgeway, Virginia. Carefully selecting Virginia grown apples and the very best Yakima Valley wines, we utilize age-old processes and rules for making our ultra-premium spirits. In addition to our distillation efforts, we have started four orchards and planting more than 4oo premier heirloom Brandy & Cider apple trees since 2020.

Today, we offer four award winning varieties of Brandy, as well as, natural brandy- infused whole bean coffee, local barrel-aged honey and much more. Visit the Distillery Thursday-Saturday weekly and learn more about our unique operation while enjoying a complimentary tour & tasting!
