A Persistent Veteran with a Passion for Creating Customized Spirits Opens Distillery in Disputanta
On June 20, 2017, the ribbon was finally cut to open Three Brothers Distillery after many, many hard work days building the facility on weekends with great friends. It is now open on Saturdays from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM and on Sundays by appointment. David Reavis is the owner who has brought his passion for whiskey and for history, as well as his dogged determination to this project. He is working to introduce the art and history of distilling in Virginia. He started with a business plan in 2012. Reavis is a retired Navy Submarine Electronics Technician.
Right now you can purchase the elegant Silk Jacket Gin, described as your grandfather’s or your great-grandfather’s spirit. It is a Naval strength compound gin. You will know it is gin by the smell of the juniper but that is where the comparisons end, as it is highly flavored and it is not clear like those other brands you know about. So far, the consensus from tasters has been, “I don’t like gin, but I love this” and “as smooth as the name implies”.
Eventually, Three Brothers will also produce its GEORGE Fine Virginian Rye Whiskey.
Three Brothers is committed, to the extent possible, to use locally sourced ingredients and will always look to local farmers and business owners first. You need to check it out – Southeastern Virginia’s only grain-to-glass distillery!
