The Appalachian Distillery Facility is 10,000 square feet.
Appalachian Moonshine is a real sour mash whiskey. Our mashing process extracts all the natural sugars and flavor from the grain, no added sugar as some other companies do to raise their alcohol level. Our products are made with local grains and bottled with certified arsenic free U.S. bottles. Our product is mashed, fermented, distilled and bottled on site, giving you a premium product. This separates us from the various companies using GNS or (grain neutral spirits) purchased from an ethanol plant and put in a bottle. We offer a hand crafted authentic product made on site in Ripley WV U.S.A. Our goal is to raise the bar by having a product that others will be judged by. Appalachian Distillery produces a high quality premium product that people will enjoy.
Our product comes in a moonshine style jug, and not your typical whiskey bottle or mason jar style container. In every design feature we desired to come up with unique bottles, flavors, and labels to set us apart from the rest.
Our distilling process is hands on from start to finish. Just like the old timers use to do it. From the corn stalk to the bottle, 100% West Virginia Made!
Family tours are available at Appalachian Distillery, as are free tastings for those 21 and older, during regular operating hours.
Tours cost $5 per person; the fee is waived with the purchase of merchandise. The tours typically take 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the wait time involved with the number of visitors.
After the tour, don't forget to check out the distillery’s expansive, country store-evoking gift shop featuring a number of moonshine-related items that make unique souvenirs and conversation pieces.
