"HAVE THE COURAGE OF YOUR CONVICTIONS"

Using the highest quality malted barley and fresh spring water fed from the Blue Ridge Mountains, Courage & Conviction was developed to leverage Virginia’s climate, allowing the broad temperature shifts to add depth to our whisky. 

The whiskies of Courage & Conviction, developed under the tutelage of Dr. Jim Swan, feature three core cask types:

  • BOURBON CASKS: Aging in former Bourbon casks sourced from Kentucky adds notes of vanilla, caramel, butterscotch and toffee.
  • CUVÉE CASKS: This innovative “STR” cask is sourced from premium European red wine products, bringing notes of raspberry, cherry, brown sugar, cocoa and baking spice.
  • SHERRY CASKS: Using three different Sherry casks, Fino, Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez, gives the whisky notes of cherry, fig, golden raisin and caramelized plum.
