At the Citizen Public House, Andrea started by asking for the Act of Union from bartender Sean Frederick. The drink features a whisky produced by the Virginia Distillery Company; the VDC purchased a Highland malt whisky from Scotland and finished it in port-style wine casks from a local Virginia winery. The cocktail is most likely named after the Act of Union of 1707 which joined England and Scotland into Great Britain.
