Virginia Rye Whiskey Producer #23
In just 3 short years the list of Virginia Rye Whiskey producers has more than doubled, from 10 to 23.
The newest addition is JT Smith, a 4th generation maker of Virginia Whiskey, and the son of America’s Most Wanted Moonshiner, Tim Smith. He was first introduced to the world in 2011 as he learned his family’s heritage on the show Moonshiners airing on The Discovery Channel. These days he is following in his father’s footsteps as a business man, making a name and place for himself in that family heritage, introducing an old spirit to a new generation of drinkers.
JT Rye Whiskey is produced in a 1933 copper still on the family farm, Belmont, in Culpeper, Virginia.
This 93% rye, 7% malted barley whiskey is aged with Applewood chips and proofed at 88.
