Lovingston
Nelson County, Virginia

After years in the making, Virginia Distillery Company will officially open this coming weekend on Saturday – November 14, 2015. Tuesday VDC held a ribbon cutting at the site of their operation located on Eades Lane just off of Route 29 north of Lovingston. The opening is the culmination of a 9 million dollar investment with its beginnings stretching all the way back to 2008. VDC makes American single malt whisky.

Folks dropping by for the ribbon cutting this past Tuesday got the chance to sample some of VDC's single malt whisky.

We’ve been following VDC since the very beginning here in Nelson with updates along the way.

Over the past several weeks finishing touches were being put on a visitor's center at the distillery.

Good water could lead to an increase in local tourism.

    Is it true that VA Governor Terry McAuliffe cancelled coming to the VDC opening ceremony today due to over cast skies? Hmmm… Nothing to do with Dominion Power Pipeline issues? I find that interesting.
