Going Out Guide: Purcellville

Holley Simmons, the dining editor at the Washington Post, does a story on day-tripping out to Purcellville:

You may want to have a good cure for the hiccups — and a designated driver — before venturing into Purcellville, Va.: The bucolic town, 50 miles west of Washington in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is full of wineries, breweries and an eco-ganic distillery. But if booze is not your thing, there’s easy access to the scenic Washington & Old Dominion bike trail for cyclists.

The story highlights our distillery as one of the great reasons we love downtown Purcellville!

Last year, Becky and Scott Harris moved their certified eco-ganic distillery from a 2,000-square-foot warehouse to a 6,000-square-foot facility (a Buick dealership in the 1920s). Now more than 10,000 visitors a year witness the production of gin, white whiskey and - their flagship product - rye whiskey aged in charred Minnesota white oak barrels. "About 60 percent of the flavoring comes from the barrels," Becky says. There's a 30-minute tour ($5) and a tasting room ($5-$10).
