Mt. Defiance creates handcrafted, small batch hard ciders and spirits. Our two stores are located in historic Middleburg, Virginia.
At our Cider Barn, we offer tastings of our delicious ciders in our beautiful tasting hall. We have traditional farmhouse blends of dry cider and do a single variety cider, but we also love to infuse fresh ginger for a serious ginger flavored cider and we run a full spectrum of infused and co-fermented ciders ranging from honey (cyser) to blueberries to our five pepper cider, designed to stand up to barbecues. Every season brings different flavors to entice our customers.
The Cider Barn is located at:
495 E. Washington Street

Mt. Defiance Distillery focuses on the revival of classic spirits. We bring the best of craft distilling to the process with attention to quality ingredients sourced locally whenever possible. Our distiller explores the world of “lost spirits,” those that had fallen out of favor either due to post-Prohibition mass production methods, out-of-date laws, or both. Our absinthe and cassis liqueur are products of this approach. We also honor Middleburg, our colonial-era town, with one of the most popular spirits of that time, rum.
For a small distillery, we offer a wide portfolio of spirits, all made with the same attention to detail. Many of our products are available in Virginia ABC stores and restaurants and at select stores in Washington, DC. All our spirits and ciders are available for tasting at our distillery.
The distillery is located at:
