About Tarnished Truth Distilling Company

Back in the days of Prohibition, the sandy shores of Old Dominion hid lawless bootleggers as they would transport illicit spirits in souped-up cars, jerry-rigged specifically to outrun the law. Founded in 2015, Tarnished Truth Distilling Company is devoted to telling Virginia Beach’s role in whiskey history with their award-winning craft spirits.

There’s simply nothing else like Tarnished Truth Distilling Company. Headquartered in the old laundry room of the 5-star Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach, Tarnished Truth is the first and only distillery to be located in a working hotel in the United States. But the craft distillery is more than a unique destination.

Tarnished Truth is a testament to taking your time. All their spirits are made with local grains and distilled using handmade Vendome Copper and Brass Works stills. They double distill their bourbons, aging them for at least three years, not taking them out until you can taste the Virginia history in every drop.
