Last year (wow, it feels weird to say that!), the Library of Virginia, with support from Virginia ABC and the Virginia Distillers Association, developed an exhibit that was on display in Richmond. Now, that exhibit, “Teetotalers & Moonshiners: Prohibition in Virginia, Distilled,” is on the road. For the next 4-5 weeks, it’s here in town at the Blacksburg branch of the Montgomery-Floyd Regional Library!
There are a couple of sneak-peek pictures on their Facebook page, but I encourage you to visit the exhibit in person and learn more about an exciting time period (and one of my favorites!) in cocktail history! I suspect there will be some events going on in conjunction with the exhibit and I’ll try to post updates. And, if all goes according to plan, we’ll also have a small display of materials from our collection related to this topic and time period in the next couple of weeks. (More on that soon!)
