From the day we opened in 2014, the team at Silverback Distillery has crafted high-quality, award-winning spirits in the heart of Nelson County. Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains and bordering the Rockfish River, the distillery and tasting room are a destination worth "a long visit" along Nelson's Route 151. From the refreshing, citrus-forward Strange Monkey Gin to real honey-liqueur infused Blackback Rye Whiskey to the "ultimate butterscotch bomb" Blackback Bourbon, Silverback Distillery strives to produce distinct, flavorful, local spirits from a unique mix of Virginia grain, mountain water and good ol' American craft(woman)ship.
Silverback Distillery is committed to producing the finest quality American bourbon, whiskey, gin, and vodka. We are dedicated to being exemplary stewards of the environment, and have made it our mission to become industry leaders in “green” distilling and production methodologies through minimizing energy usage and environmental impact.
Silverback has two locations. Our Virginia location is our flagship location that opened August 2014. Our Virginia located is located at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains and bracketed by the Rockfish River on Route 151. Silverback proudly welcomes local residents, out of state visitors, and international tourists alike to stop by our tasting room to partake in our educational tasting experience.
