"Have the courage of your Convictions"
SETTING THE STANDARD FOR AMERICAN SINGLE MALT WHISKY
With the courage to create our own traditions, and the conviction to remain true to ourselves and our home, Courage & Conviction sets the new standard for American Single Malt whisky, rivaling the finest in the world.
Using the highest quality malted barley and fresh spring water fed from the Blue Ridge Mountains, our spirit was developed to leverage Virginia’s climate, allowing the broad temperature shifts to add depth to our whisky. Hand-hammered copper pot stills crafted in Scotland are used to distill our spirit using time-honored techniques. What makes us a distinctly American whisky, and defines our signature taste, is our unique combination of casks aged in Virginia’s climate.
Our Courage & Conviction whiskies, developed under the tutelage of Dr. Jim Swan and Nancy Fraley, utilize many different cask types for maturation with the three core types being Bourbon, Sherry, and Cuvée casks. Aging in these exceptional casks adds intensity and complexity to the spirit.
HAVE THE COURAGE TO BE EXTRAORDINARY
As our blenders perform sensory analysis of each cask, exceptional casks are hand-selected and set aside for our single cask program. These casks show a range of depth and complexity, maximizing the influence of both the cask and Virginia’s dynamic climate.
