“makers of Virginia Lightning Moonshine!”
For more than four centuries our forefathers have been producing fresh whiskey in the hills of Virginia. Now, for the last 30 years, this once elusive drink is available for all to enjoy. Until 30 years ago, whiskey for popular consumption, had been made in column stills, handling thousands of gallons per hour. Only at Belmont Farm, our whiskey is produced in a genuine solid copper pot still. While others may be flooding the market, our pot still whiskey is slow and handled with care, to preserve all of the aroma and taste of a fine fresh whiskey. Our copper pot still is truly the secret of our whiskey. On our farm, we grow our own corn, harvest it, store it, and grind it, in preparation for our whiskey. We add only choice malt to our corn meal, which is cooked in our stainless steel cooker. We are proud of our yeast preparation in our stainless steel yeast tank, which is carefully stirred and watched. We follow a unique family recipe to cook the corn mash. After cooking is completed, the mash is sent to copper fermentation tanks for four days. The fermented mash is then sent to our 2000 gallon copper pot still and is distilled. (This copper pot still was constructed in 1930. Although this form of whiskey production had been abandoned in the United States, we at Belmont Farm have dedicated ourselves to the continuation of pot still whiskey). Once the whiskey leaves the pot still, it then proceeds to the doubler where it is further distilled, to increase the proof and insure our quality product. The whiskey is now ready to be bottled and is sent to the bottling room, where it is prepared for shipment.
