Spirits of the Clinch

It has been said that the Clinch River is haunted by spirits of yesteryear, with legends of busted stills and revenuers claiming victory during the bootleg era. Today you can experience the Spirits of the Clinch and taste the region’s best beers, wines, and spirits made with the water from the Northern Hemisphere’s most biologically diverse river!

Starting on either end of Virginia’s Hidden River, you can find distilleries, breweries, wineries and a cidery waiting like old friends at the end of a windy road to greet you. Each has its own distinctive character and flavors that will definitely bring you back for more!
