Temporarily Closed for staffing shortage





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.

Unless special arrangements are made tours are only offered on 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 four patrons during the pandemic to ensure that everyone has the best experience possible.  Walk-ins are welcome, but we cannot guarantee you will be able to join a tour.

Beginner’s Mixology Classes

Presented as an AirBnB Experience. Everyone loves a great cocktail, but many find all the specialized tools, exotic ingredients, and obscure lingo intimidating. This Experience aims to begin to break down the barriers that keep you from realizing your mixology dreams.


2-Day Distillation Workshop

Distilling is many things; a hobby, a profession, subversive, traditional, practical, superfluous, but most of all…fun! In the course Introduction to Distilling by Vitae Spirits Distillery, we aim to introduce our students to both the lore and pragmatics of this ancient art through a two day workshop combining didactic and hands-on learning. The goal of the course is to provide students basic competency in discussing and appreciating the art of distillation; it is not meant to be a practical guide to starting your own distillery, though we’d be happy if it is your first step down that path.
