RVA Makers May Meetup at Virago Spirits

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Virago will be slinging craft cocktails and samples in their beautiful tasting room, sharing their start-up story, and giving tours of their distillery workspace! This is a 21+ only event.

Virago is a family-owned business that opened in November 2018. Their flagship product is a blended rum, and they are starting the long process of carefully crafting an array of other spirits such as gin and various liqueurs.

"Our production philosophy blends a deep respect for time-honored, traditional production techniques with New World creativity, ingenuity and innovation. We distill our spirits on a vintage, direct-fire, 2,500-liter Charentais-style alembic still – one of only a few operating in the United States. The process is laborious and slow and requires significant patience, skill and attention-to-detail. The results, however, are spirits and liqueurs of uncompromising quality, balance and depth of flavor. Learn more about our production process here: "

A few details: due to ABC laws there is a two-drink limit in the tasting room, so you can buy two drink tickets upon entering. Bottles will be available for sale as well. There is a 50-person capacity to the tasting room, but with room to spread out nearby - so PLEASE rsvp to this event for our planning purposes!

✔ two gender neutral bathrooms available
✔ wheelchair / ADA compliant, plenty of available seating
✔ near a bus line, parking lot right outside
✔ sensory friendly (no sudden or loud noises, no flashing lights, space to move away from the group, no strong scents)


RVA Makers meets the third Wednesday of each month from 5:30-7:30. Join us for a chance to socialize with awesome makers and other interesting folks. See behind the scenes and talk shop at a different studio (or workshop or garage or ...?) every month! Come on out, and bring a friend!
