LOVINGSTON, Va. (November 10, 2020) – As COVID-19 continues to impact small businesses, spirits producers, retailers and others, now is more important than ever for businesses to expand its online offerings and services. Virginia Distillery Company recently began offering its flagship American Single Malt in the ‘Courage & Conviction’ product line for online purchase in 24 states as well as D.C. through Curiada, a new online spirits marketplace curating collections of the world’s most distinctive spirits.
A bottle of Courage & Conviction retails for $77.00 via Curiada and can be delivered in D.C., Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota and Wyoming.
“As an independent whisky producer, we’re proud to be working with a small business dedicated to supporting boutique brands,” said Virginia Distillery Company’s CEO Gareth H. Moore. “Courage & Conviction sets a new standard for American whisky and now even more Americans will have access to it through our partnership with Curiada.”
Aged a minimum of three years, Courage & Conviction is distilled on-site using 100% North American malted barley and mountain spring-fed water. The flagship whisky is matured in old world sherry casks, traditional bourbon barrels and re-coopered cuvée wine casks which adds intensity and complexity to the spirit. The inaugural batch was released in the spring of 2020 and has received accolades including 91 Points – Summer 2020 by Whisky Advocate, 94 Points – Finalist in the Ultimate Spirits challenge, inclusion in USA Today’s 2020 10Best Whiskey Distillery winners and more. Additional releases in the Courage & Conviction line will feature solo bottlings of each cask type, slated for Spring 2021.
