Courage & Conviction American Single Malt Whisky
About Courage & Conviction American Single Malt Whisky
750ml & 92 Proof
Courage & Conviction is the flagship product and first full release from up-and-coming Virginia Distillery Co.
The distillery worked closely with Dr. Jim Swan, one of the most revered names in Scotch distillation, to create this elegant and refined spirit. It reflects the craftsmanship, expertise, and passion of a team committed to doing things the right way.
Get your hands on a bottle and taste for yourself why those in the know are calling this by far the best American Single Malt Whisky on the market today.
The second edition of Courage & Conviction is dedicated to Dr. Jim Swan, who passed away in 2017 following a 40-year career supporting the science of distilling. It's a fitting tribute, redolent of grilled pineapple, citrus and coconut on nose and palate, finishing with warming gingery tingle and a hint of rancio-like funk. - Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast
A nose of caramel and butterscotch. Bright red fruit, raspberry, cocoa, barrel spice and vanilla on the palate. Creamy and exceptionally smooth finish with hints of cinnamon and orange zest.
Sip neat, on the rocks, or with a splash of water
Distilled, aged, and bottled on location at the distillery in Lovington, VA. No color added, non chill-filtered, and never any additives.
The highest quality malted barley and fresh spring water from the Blue Ridge Mountains is distilled in hand-hammered copper pot stills.
The distillate is then aged in a combination of Bourbon, Sherry, and Cuvée casks. The Cuvée casks, sourced from premium European red wine producers, are prepared according to a special method developed by Dr. Jim Swan, employed by only a handful of distilleries in the world. Before being filled they are broken down, shaved, re-toasted, and re-charred, then reassembled, bringing forth an incredible depth of aroma and flavor that is imparted into the liquid.
Courage & Conviction is aged for a minimum of three years, but drinks like a whisky that's been aged much longer. (Find out why below.)
Virginia Distillery Co. is dedicated to full transparency, education, and empowerment for the knowledge-seeking whisky drinker. You'll find on its website a full analysis of the many production dimensions of each Courage & Conviction batch.
