Cheers to the Virginia winners in the 2019 American Distilling Institute [www.Distilling.com] Judging of Craft Spirits Awards. The event took place from March 18-21 in Denver.

The competition, which started in 2005, is the oldest and largest competition dedicated to craft spirits. Thousands of spirits from across the country are evaluated by a panel of experts to recognize excellence in the glass. 

We raise a glass to the medalists below, and all the fine distilleries across the Old Dominion.
