INTRODUCING AN AWARD-WINNING AMERICAN SINGLE MALT WHISKY
Courage & Conviction sets the new standard for American Single Malt whisky, rivaling the finest in the world.
"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.
AN AWARD-WINNING AMERICAN SINGLE MALT
Since its release in 2020, Courage & Conviction has been receiving the highest praise, earning achievements from some of the industry’s most accredited publications.

"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
WHISKY ADVOCATE - 91 PTS
"Lemon and orange oil, guava, kiwi, dried leaves, nutty tobacco, and peppery spice, with a gentle, slow-fading finish."
