Whiskey Tour 2010 - ideas for the group

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:

Hi Al,
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.


Kind Regards,
Chris

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

It would be a day trip or overnighter (all nighter for Ed) for those so inclined...

The Eades Hollow property is a perfect location for the distillation and aging of whisky but it offers much more: Frontage on Rt 29, twenty five minutes from Charlottesville and Wintergreen Resort and a day trip from Washington DC. Eades will also be located on the new "Whiskey Trail", running from Mount Vernon, Virginia down through the big Bourbon manufacturers in Kentucky.

How far? Come visit us! Meet our Wetpet!

Come ride down the river with us rednecks in a whitewater raft in the Virginia back country - a trip you will not soon forget. We might even print some t-shirts for the event.
