Strawberry season is officially underway in Virginia. Instead of picking fresh strawberries, sip them with Belle Isle’s new Strawberry Matcha moonshine.

The Richmond-based distillery’s newest release combines their award-winning premium moonshine with real strawberry and authentic matcha green tea to create a “fresh and uplifting infusion.” Belle Isle Strawberry Matcha is 70 proof (35% ABV) and gluten free.

This limited-edition release is only available in Belle Isle’s Online Distillery Store.
