Our passion is inspired by the beautiful mountains and coastline of our beloved state of Virginia. That’s why, at Cape Charles Distillery, we draw on both to craft our spirits. We cook our locally grown corn and grains with pristine mountain spring water to create our flagship bourbon, whiskeys, moonshine, and vodka. As a matter of fact, everything we do here is all about using quality local products and celebrating Cape Charles’ rich history, a history that’s helped shape the eastern shore….
