About Us

100% Original Moonshine

From coal mines to moonshine, Distillery owners, Dwayne Freeman and James Hager have left behind a life underground to do what they have dreamt of doing - making moonshine. Being from Appalachia both Dwayne and James have a history of moonshining families. As career miners they decided to put their dream to the test. A dream became a thought and that thought was put into motion. Appalachian Distillery had finally been born! It has taken over 2 years to jump all of the legal hoops to arrive where they are today. At this point in time they hope nothing more than for these dreams to end successfully!


"In today's market moonshine is a high demand product, with our Original Appalachian Moonshine we hope to set a new standard in the moonshine industry" J.Hager


"We use quality local ingredients in our products, our recipe as well as our distillation process is what puts our product a step above the rest!". D.Freeman

Original Appalachian Moonshine.
