It all began in 1988. Coming from a family of moonshine history, Chuck and Jeanette Miller had a dream to keep that history alive. The Millers decided to turn their Culpeper, Virginia farm into a distillery, and in 1988, Belmont Farm Distillery was born. The distillery was a historic milestone as it was the very first Craft Whiskey Distillery in the United States. 

Until 30 years ago, whiskey for popular consumption, had been made in column stills, handling thousands of gallons per hour. Only at Belmont Farm, our whiskey is produced in a genuine solid copper pot still. While others may be flooding the market, our pot still whiskey is slow and handled with care, to preserve all of the aroma and taste of a fine fresh whiskey. Our copper pot still is truly the secret of our whiskey.
