In the wise words of Rob Thomas: “Man, it’s a hot one.” Now that it’s officially summer, things are getting pretty balmy here in Richmond. We like to think our everyday Go-To Drinks are pretty refreshing, but 90°+ weather calls for something extra chilly. We’re rounding up some of our new favorite frozen bevvies to help you beat those triple-digit temps and catch a decent buzz in the meantime. From a Honey Habanero-injected frosé to a frosty version of our Blood Orange Mule, let these tried-and-true chillers cool you down and turn you up.

Still thirsty?

Belle Isle Moonshine is a premium, handcrafted spirit proudly hailing from Richmond, Virginia.

We take the name Belle Isle from a small, 540-acre island located smack dab in the middle of the James River where Civil War soldiers used surplus corn rations to make moonshine in copper kettles.

Belle Isle Moonshine is distilled from 100% organic corn, grown by three family farms and responsibly sourced. Once triple-distilled, we charcoal filter Belle Isle four times over. Then, we cut it with purified water right from the James River. Our infusions are made with 100% real ingredients, never artificial flavors or color. We use real grapefruits sourced from Texas and California, local honey from the Shenandoah Valley, organic habaneros grown an hour away, and freshly roasted coffee beans from the most socially conscious roastery in Richmond, Blanchard's Coffee Roasting Co.

From there, each bottle of Belle Isle Moonshine is filled, corked, labeled, and packed by hand by our Production team, who check each bottle and batch for quality assurance. Since Belle Isle is made in small batches, you can find the batch number handwritten in the bottom right corner of each bottle.

Distilled from good times and 100% organic corn.
