A new distillery will be opening up in Powhatan at the beginning of August.
John and Michelle Davenport will soon welcome the public to Three Crosses Distillery for tastings of their rye whiskey, whiskey, bourbon, moonshine, rum and vodka.
Along with porch seating, Three Crosses’ tasting room will have seating for about 25.
Three Crosses will make its spirits with two 150- and 250-gallon stills, which Davenport said will produce about 18 gallons of product per batch.
The couple have been perfecting their recipes for years and are now ready to share them with the community. The two will be rare in the industry as veteran and female distillers.
The distillery will serve up to three ounces of liquor for tasting and will offer specialty drinks for each product. Private events and tasting classes will also be offered.
