 Tasting Room is open.

Tastings, bottles sales, classes, and tours are offered.

Per Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control guidelines customers are allotted tastings of up to a total of 3 ounces per person per day. These tastings can either be served as straight spirit in 0.5 ounce pours or 1.5 ounces of spirits with a cocktail mixer.


You must be at least 21 years of age to drink any alcohol. Because we must enforce the 3 oz. maximum per person per day, we must keep track of all tastings. No matter your age, we have to verify your name before you can taste our spirits.

Interested in learning the finer points of distillation?

Vitae Spirits offers a 2-day weekend long Introduction to Distillation course that includes hands-on production exercises, palate training, and conceptual basics.

Keep an eye open on our Facebook page for date announcements.

Tours reserved online include three 0.5 oz. tastings of our spirits for $7 per person. Reservations are non-refundable.
Unless special arrangements are made tours are only offered on Friday evenings and all day Saturdays.

Witness firsthand the renaissance of small-scale distilling in Virginia. You’ll see a working distillery in live action teaming with our production staff performing their art, fermenters gurgling, cookers roaring, bottlers squirting, and our custom made Vendome still pouring out the good stuff.

Make tour reservations using the calendar below.

Tours are intended to be both enlightening and fun and should last about 45 minutes to an hour, depending how much fun we are having! Space is limited on the tours to ten patrons to ensure that everyone has the best experience possible.  Walk-ins are welcome if you are a party less than eight people, but we cannot guarantee you will be able to join a tour. For parties more than eight, you must make a reservation before you arrive so that we can be certain to accommodate your group. If you have a large group or would like to try to arrange a special time or tour, email
