James River Distillery Is All Ginned Up 

A Richmond distillery has won federal approval to sell Commonwealth gin, which the producers plan to have on liquor-store shelves by the end of August.

James River Distillery's owners are local. One of the partners, Kristi Croxton, says ingredients also will hail from Virginia, though she declines to be more specific.

"We are confident … it will do both Richmond and Virginia proud," she says.

James River Distillery purchased its facility on Hardy Street last year. The building formerly was occupied by Cirrus vodka, which lost the property to foreclosure.

Croxton says James River has tentative plans to develop other liquors, but nothing else is currently in production.
