Happy Hour at Appalachian Heritage Distillery

October 17, 2022 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Join us for Happy Hour at Appalachian Heritage Distillery in Damascus, Virginia, a town where individuality and community go hand in hand. Relax in the new event center while bringing in the first of fall. Purchase tickets here while supplies last:

You and your friends will enjoy tasty appetizers made with local ingredients by Chef Alvin Bragg, two cocktails (spirits or beer) and live music by RJ Smith. Feel good knowing that your ticket purchase is an investment in the important work that Appalachian Sustainable Development has been doing in northeast TN and southwest VA since 1995. This event is sponsored by these generous partners: Concord Wealth Partners, Food Country, USA and Powell Valley Bank. 80% of all ingredients sourced from local farmers. All proceeds benefit Appalachian Sustainable Development. Located directly on the Appalachian Trail in downtown Damascus, Appalachian Heritage Distillery proudly produces pristine spirits. Their generational family knowledge stems from a region steeped in cultural tradition. The unique design of their elegant and productive pot still forces a multiple distilled spirit with smooth yet robust flavor perfect for every gathering. Appalachian Heritage Distillery’s story starts in 1919, deep in the Appalachian Mountains with Grandpa Bud Justus and his passion for crafting quality spirits. Bud had a prominent smokehouse behind his dwelling where customers left with more than a ham in their satchel. A copper vessel, located in the back of his smokehouse, was not for smoking meats. You see, Bud enjoyed a fine reputation as a champion covert distiller and his patrons came from three different states along the Tug River: West Virginia, Kentucky and Virginia. Now, four generations later, Grandpa Bud’s legacy lives on. While the recipes, equipment, and unlawfulness of the operation may have been “slightly” amended, his commitment to quality persists. Appalachian Heritage Distillery strives to harness the spirit of tradition in the tradition of spirits.
