The distillery was completed in 2016, and the main distilled spirits plant was constructed using modern construction techniques to ensure compliance with health and safety, environmental controls, and waste management. The tasting room is an old log cabin constructed in the early 1800s and moved to the property in 2015 with the help of Barnwood Builders, a show that celebrates the American pioneer spirit and pays tribute to the hard work and craftsmanship that built our nation.
The distillery uses an American made 300-gallon Trident Still constructed in Etna, Maine. The grain is sourced from local growers, and the corn used for our traditional corn whiskey grows right across the road from the distillery. On completion of the mashing process, the spent mash is returned to the farm where the corn was grown and provides a tasty treat for the local cows.
Springfield Distillery is located on River Road, one of Virginia’s scenic byways, and the area is rich in history and agriculture. The log cabin tasting room with its wrap-around porch is the perfect setting to relax and enjoy a handcrafted spirit.
