ABOUT BREWERS BATCH VIRGINIA-HIGHLAND WHISKY 
A Virginia Beer Collaboration with Three Notch’d Brewing Co.

The Brewers Batch is a new collection being offered under Virginia Distillery Company’s Virginia-Highland Whisky series. This batch features finishing casks sourced from local breweries. The first batch was done in collaboration with Three Notch’d Brewing Company, a Central Virginia favorite.

Three Notch’d Brewing created a Wee Heavy style beer especially for this collaboration called “Stage Road”. The brewery used Virginia Distillery Company’s whisky casks to age the beer for a number of months and Virginia Distillery Company took the barrels back for finishing this inaugural release of Brewers Batch. The whisky finished in these casks for 18 months.

The Brewers Batch Virginia-Highland Whisky is made from 100% malted barley and showcases both Old World and New World whisky making. Virginia Distillery Company marries whisky made on-site in Virginia with whisky from Scotland. A focus on cask finishing adds depth and complexity.

TASTING NOTES: Dark dried fruit, mocha and toffee are evident with a hint of bittersweet chocolate on the palate. The beer influence is there, resulting in a biscuit and vanilla note which accentuates the malt notes in the whisky.

PRODUCTION: 240 cases

RELEASE DATE: February 10, 2018 at the Visitors Center. It will also be available in select Virginia ABC stores. A small amount will be available in Washington, DC.

RETAIL PRICE: $64.59
