Virago Spirits is a craft distillery based in Richmond, VA that produces classically inspired, creatively interpreted spirits. A virago is defined as a heroic woman of great strength, courage, determination, and vision. The people of Virago Spirits work to infuse these very characteristics - the spirit of Virago - into everything they do and all that they make. As people, they promote character. As a company, they produce ‘Character, Distilled.’
Virago Spirits’ production philosophy blends a deep respect for time-honored, traditional production techniques with new-world creativity, ingenuity, and innovation. This approach applies to each step of the production process: from the fermentation and distillation to the aging, blending and finishing. Their distilled spirits are produced on a direct-fire, 2,500-liter Charentais-style alembic still – one of only a few operating in the United States. The process is laborious and slow, requiring significant patience, skill, and attention to detail. The result is a range of spirits and liqueurs of uncompromising quality, balance, and depth of flavor.
Virago’s initial products are available via BigFish, including their award-winning Four-Port Rum and Ruby Port Cask Finished Rum.
