Customers visiting their local Virginia Alcoholic Control (ABC) stores can expect to see a fresh lineup of 36 new canned cocktails, spirits, and mixers. These new products span a variety of spirits including bourbon, cordials, gin, moonshine, tequila, rum, scotch, tonic, vodka, and vermouth. New products were selected from around the world, but eight of them are made right here in Virginia, including:

–                 Lost Whiskey High Rye Straight Bourbon

–                 Lost Whiskey High Wheat Straight Bourbon

–                 Reverend Spirits Bourbon Whiskey

–                 Coastal Cocktails Cranberry Vodka 4-Pack

–                 Coastal Cocktails Orange Crush Vodka 4-Pack

–                 Navy Hill Juniper Soda + Tonic 4-Pack

–                 Navy Hill Soda + Tonic 750ml (not a new product, but a larger sized bottle)

–                 Virginia Highland Cider Cask Whiskey

“While we bring in products from across the U.S. and other countries, we are lucky to have a robust spirits industry with great products here in Virginia, too,” said Virginia ABC’s Chief Executive officer Travis Hill. “We hope customers enjoy this quarter’s selection of new products and try something new this summer.”

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
