Reservoir Distillery is a Double Gold award-winning distillery located in Richmond, Virginia, created by proprietors and lifelong friends Jay Carpenter and David Cuttino. All of their mash bills are 100% expressions of the finest quality, locally-sourced grains. Reservoir Wheat Whiskey is 100% wheat; their Rye Whiskey is 100% rye, and the Bourbon is 100% corn. Reservoir is able to produce an exceptional age profile by using small barrels housed in a corner sanctuary of their distillery in historic downtown Richmond. A small barrel increases the surface area to distillate ratio, which allows for faster, comprehensive aging, and they let the local history – from the Revolutionary and Civil Wars to Arthur Ash and the recent RVA culinary renaissance – do what time does to living passions. Reservoir does not follow a set schedule for aging; instead, they personally taste every barrel to determine when it is ready. … I am definitely in the wrong line of work…
