American Whiskey

All great things take time. We’ve been working on our handcrafted, true American-made whiskey since we began our distilling adventures in 2009. Pot stilled and barrel aged for at least 18 months at Copper Fox Distillery – using our good friend and farmer, the late Billy Dawson’s Virginia-grown corn, wheat, barley, and oats – we proof, blend, and bottle it in-house at Founding Spirits. Our American Whiskey is unique, and the small-batch blend has a rich, smooth, and earthy taste that can be enjoyed many ways. We think you’ll agree, it was well worth the wait.

Visit Farmers & Distillers to try a range of cocktails made with what we consider to be the best American-made whiskey, our very own Founding Spirits American Whiskey. We use it in Whiskey Julep cocktails featuring Founding Spirits American Whiskey, mint, and bitters. Try our “Never Bitter” Julep that combines our FS American Whiskey with FS Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro and mint. Don’t miss out on our Mt Vernon Cocktail, made with FS American Whiskey, FF Rye Whisky, FS Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro, and benedictine.

We invite you to taste and experience our spirits. Stop by Farmers & Distillers or its sibling restaurants, Founding Farmers or Farmers Fishers Bakers. Our delightful variety of craft cocktails are made specifically to highlight our premium craft spirits. Founding Spirits American Whiskey makes a great gift for any whiskey connoisseur and is available for purchase on our website.
