JP Fetherston and Gareth Moore, CEO for Virginia Distillery Company, went to high school together and played on the same rugby team in Maryland. JP created this drink as a nod to their shared past, mutual appreciation for rugby (Gareth played on the “Second Row” for their rugby team) and of course, whisky.
