Distillery Coming to Nelson County

A Virginia company will produce a Scottish style malt whiskey at a facility in Nelson County.

According to the governor's office, the Virginia Distillery Company will invest $5 million to produce its new Eades Distillery brand near Lovingston. The project will create 19 jobs.

Chief operating officer Chris Allwood said they chose Eades Hollow partly for its "perfect source of sweet, clean water."

Allwood calls Nelson County "an incredibly beautiful location."

Nelson County Supervisor Allen Hale calls the distillery a "perfect complement" to the nine wineries and two breweries in the area.
