Distilleries, Cideries & Meaderies

Taking after the fast-growing wine and beer industries in Loudoun, cideries, distilleries and meaderies are starting to gain momentum. We anticipate the opening of several new venues that will only add to Loudoun's strong distilling reputation.

What's Mead?

Said to date back to the Neolithic Period more than 10,000 years ago, mead is the ancient process of fermenting honey with water to create a semi-sweet, flavorful low-alcohol content beverage. Modern meaderies innovate by harvesting local organic honey and adding intriguing flavors such as ginger, elderberry, raspberries, blueberries and other fruits.
