Event Details

From the distillery’s home in Eades Hollow, Virginia, the Virginia Distillery Company joins Bower Hill Society to bring their definitively Scottish, but uniquely southern, whiskys to Brooklyn for the first time. Hosted by The JAR Group, the evening will feature a tasting led by a member of VDC's distilling team, wintery cocktails, and handcrafted bites from our DUMBO neighborhood.  Extra southern style will be courtesy of the guys from W + P Designs, who will be shaking things up with their sexy plantation-meets-distillation cocktail accessory line including Kickstarter phenomenon, the Mason Shaker.

Tastings of Virginia Distillery Company's offerings will include:

Virginia Highland Malt WhiskyAged in French oak barrels originally filled with a port-style Virginia wine, this single malt from Highlands of Scotland is robust and complex, offering notes of honey, ginger, dark chocolate and raspberry. 

Recently sweeping gold from the Beverage Testing Institue, each expression of Eades Double Malt is a blend of two single malts from each of Scotland's major distilling regions: 

Eades 2nd Edition Islay Double Malt Whisky – score of 93 - “Rich, layered aromas of toasted buttered raisin nut bread, sea salt, herbal honey and delicate peat aromas follow through on a rich, supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity full body with excellent depth and vitality."

Eades 2nd Edition Speyside Double Malt Whisky – score of 92 - “Pure brown butter, salty roasted pecan, dried flower, conditioned leather, and raisin bread aromas follow through on a vibrant, slightly tannic entry to a dry-yet fruity full body with great vibrancy and mashed fig, date, and plantain notes."

Eades 2nd Edition Highland Double Malt Whisky – score of 91 - “Aromas of salty roasted nuts, dried flowers and berries, and toffee follow through on a supple, silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with excellent depth and balance.

 

About Virginia Distillery Company:

The Virginia Distillery Company (VDC) is at the heart of the craft distilling movement in America. It is committed to producing the highest quality Single Malt Whisky by employing traditional distilling techniques, including authentic copper pot stills manufactured in Scotland and proper aging of its whiskies.

About W + P Design:

Josh and Eric, two Virginia boys living in New York who have mixed together our love of fine cocktails and classic Southern style into one unique product: the Mason Shaker®. The concept for the Mason Shaker® was developed from of an obsession with vintage kitchenware (Josh) and an uncanny ability to fashion impromptu drinking tools at a moment’s notice (Eric). After one too many mint juleps poured from a poorly-modified Mason Jar one summer, the idea for a better (and cooler) cocktail shaker hit us like a double shot of whiskey. The Mason Shaker® was born.
