We are in the process of opening a family operated farm distillery.
The answer to that question is pretty straightforward: it is simply a distillery space on a farm or a distillery very close to a farm. Farming and distilling practically go hand-in-hand. Farm distillers originally came about because farmers did not want the crops that they produced to go to waste.
Restoration of this 1840's Virginia Log Cabin has begun. This little piece of history will become the home for our Tasting Room at Sandy River Distillery. This cabin was moved from its original location in Prospect Virginia, and we are assembling it back to its original glory. Obviously there are some historical features that we cannot restore, so we are upgrading some products to save the integrity of the cabin.
Our Still House is a 40 ft shipping container. The interior was completely lined with recycled poplar wood boards, that were hand milled to make paneling. The piece de resistance is our 250 Gallon Copper Pot Still handcrafted in the U.S.A by Steven Stillz. This building is where at the magic happens!!
Our unique destination honors the history of Virginia homesteaders, old style craft style distilling and adding the modern day shipping containers for the industrial feel , mixing old and new techniques and materials to achieve a building that honors both history and modernity.
