Hey There!

We are still sharing Black Owned Brands for Black History Month and today's share is for Virginia Black Whiskey. Virginia Black is co founded by celebrity musician and actor, Drake and award winning spirits producer, Brent Hocking.  We decided to infuse this already smooth and easy to drink whiskey with cacao for an even more decadent experience. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
