“I think I’m the only distiller in Congress,” Rep. Denver Riggleman told Roll Call at Silverback Distillery, a Virginia distillery he owns with his wife, Christine. “Actually, I’m a junior distiller, I work for a master,” Riggleman said in reference to his wife, who is the CEO and Master Distiller of the family-run operation. The GOP congressman now spends much of his time in Washington away from the business, but continues to pitch in when he’s home in his district. The couple gave Roll Call a tour of the facility, as well as a sampling of their most popular creations.
