Virginia Lightning Moonshine

by staff on August 18, 2010

It’s authentic.  It’s local.  It’s an amazing story.  The moonshine corn whiskey from Belmont Farms near Culpeper VA story is one that we can’t wait to share with you.   This is about a family operation where they grow and ferment and bottle their own corn whiskey, made in copper kettles from a family recipe, just like the old days.  The finished products are known as Virginia Lightning (corn whiskey 100 proof and 50% alcohol by volume) ….. and Kopper Kettle Virginia Whiskey (86 proof and 43% alcohol by volume).   They offer tours of the distillery on most days and they even have an Informational Room where they showcase such things as the History Channel and National Geographic’s shows about moonshine.  If you’re looking for Americana in historic Virginia, this might pique your interest.
