We are inspired by the breathtaking mountains and picturesque coastline of our beloved state of Virginia, and it is this passion that drives us at Cape Charles Distillery. Our spirits are crafted by utilizing the rich resources of both these natural wonders. We use locally grown corn and grains, coupled with pristine mountain spring water, to create our flagship bourbon, whiskeys, moonshine, and vodka. Our focus always remains on using high-quality local products and celebrating Cape Charles’ rich history, which has played a significant role in shaping the eastern shore.
