April saw the first full month of construction of our new facility at 120 W. Main St. in Purcellville. We began construction on April 1st (no foolin'!), and immediately began demolition of the drywall within the old building. We had quite a few surprises in store: First, we found an old basement, which we bravely explored, and learned that the building was once heated by a coal-fired steam furnace. What will become of this basement, we've yet to determine. Second, when we pulled down the drywall, we discovered a beautiful set of four antique windows with original glass, and two old doors, which were in fantastic shape. These will now feature prominently in the wall between the distillery and the tasting room.
After clearing out all the drywall, we began working in several areas: The floor was cut apart so we could lay in new plumbing. We're putting in cast iron sewer pipes, which will be durable and last for generations to come, and proudly made in the USA. Major truss repair and replacement was done, removing broken trusses and load bearing walls in the tasting room, and replacing them with steel I-beam trusses to support the weight of the roof. The tasting room now looks so much larger!
Visit the first family-owned distillery in Loudoun County since before Prohibition. See this working distillery in production, including a 400 liter custom-made Kothe still and condenser. Tours will highlight the process of making distilled spirits, including fermentation, distillation, aging and bottling.
Often, depending on the day, you may see much of this equipment in operation and meet and speak with the owners.
