I have a buddy, Joe, who is a founder and CEO of the Virginia Distillery Company at www.virginiadistillerycompany.com
and am thinking of making a run to the plant for a tour and tasting this Fall.
Just curious if some of you *might* be interested (esp. those Tifosi whom I had given a bottle of double-malt Eades Scotch to from VDC). Obviously, it has to be called "Whisky" when brewed outside Scotland. retails for $70 per bottle, and well worth the price.
Here's an email reply I thought I'd share for now from his chief distiller:
Sorry for the delay in responding, I have been trying to take my eyes off the Ferraris for the last 10 minutes!! <-- (sent him a pic from the Holy Donut)
I will certainly keep you in mind for a road trip. I can almost guarantee a full colour feature in the Nelson County Life Magazine if for your fellow Ferrari owners to keep as a memento.
The distillery should open in September so Iíll keep you updated as we make progress.

It would make for a nice article for Ferrari Life
quarterly magazine too.
