"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.

- 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."
