Mt. Defiance Distillery

Mt. Defiance Distillery Mt. Defiance Distillery focuses on the revival of classic spirits that have their roots in both Colonial America and Europe. The English settlers in America brought with them a love of hard cider, and its close relation, Apple Brandy. We are happy to offer Apple Brandy, and later this year we will begin selling Apple liqueur made from our brandy and local apple cider. Rum, the most widely consumed spirit in the American colonies, fell in popularity over the course of the 19th century. We are participating in its comeback, focusing on traditional techniques to produce both aged and un-aged products that are full flavored yet smooth. This year we will also begin producing and selling Absinthe. We use the same all natural ingredients for our absinthe as were used in fin de siècle France, with Grand Wormwood, Lemon Balm and Hyssop grown here in Virginia, Aniseed from Andalucía, Spain, and Fennel Doux from Provence, France. Long banned, Absinthe has been redeemed, and you will be able to experience this unique spirit yourself.
