• Where to Taste Virginia Craft Spirits near Hopewell and Prince George, VA

    September 25, 2017
    Happy fall y’all! Who else is ready for cooler temperatures and leaves changing color?

    September marks the celebration of Virginia Spirits Month and National Bourbon Heritage Month. This week we’ll feature 3 local distilleries so that if you missed the month-long celebration, you can catch up and keep partying into October!

    Richmond, VA is home to Belle Isle Moonshine. That’s where we’ll start this week! They’re proud to say that their moonshine is “distilled from good times and 100% organic corn.”

    You can try their Ruby Red Grapefruit Moonshine in a Ruby Mule at the Boathouse at City Point.
    This cocktail is an interesting mix of: Belle Isle Ruby Red Grapefruit Moonshine, fresh squeezed lime juice, and ginger beer. YUM!

    If you’d rather sip on your own back porch, try Bell Isle’s recipe for The Shiny Daly:
    Ingredients:
    Half a bottle of Ruby Red Grapefruit
    6 oz. iced tea
    6 oz. lemonade
    *Serve over ice in a Collins glass and garnish with a lemon wheel. Another YUM!
