Three Crosses is the first legal distillery in Powhatan County, Virginia. We proudly hand-craft spirits to our exacting standards. Truly a hobby that got out of hand, our current 150 and 250 gallon stills are hand built in Missouri by Affordable Distilling Company. Together, we have created an environment where people can come in and enjoy handcrafted spirits while making some new friends; that's what Three Crosses Distillery is all about.
We thank Powhatan and the nearby communities for being so welcoming and supporting this business endeavor. With that in mind, we try to source as many ingredients locally as possible. The corn that is used for our Route 13 Moonshine,Black Chevron Vodka, andThree Crosses American Whiskey is grown in Powhatan County by Kevin Engle, a Virginia farmer with fields in both Powhatan and Hanover Counties. Our rye for our Three Crosses American Whiskey comes from Loudon County, VA by way of Three Monkeys Farm. You'll find cheese and honey from local providers right on our shelves, as well. While we'd love to get sugar and molasses for our Crossed Rifles Rums, they simply aren't grown here commercially anymore. So, we sourced them from a seventh generation sugar consortium, Lula-Westfield in Belle Rose, Louisiana. Both the Lula and Westfield sugar processing plants date back to the late 1800s.
As we continue to develop and roll out new spirits, we intend to continue to source as many ingredients as possible from local growers and suppliers.
Come on out, take a rest, and enjoy our specialty crafted small batch spirits as you experience first-hand what sets us apart.
