This distillery is outside of Jackson, but worth the side trip and the short tour. Be sure to taste the Apple Pie Shine and if you are brave, Junior Walton’s Premium Select. The gift shop carries all sorts of doodads, what-nots and geegaws. You can...More

We stopped in late one Friday afternoon and had a quick tour - saw their new barrels and all the stills. Low production distillery but high quality and mighty fine taste. Enjoy! And bring your grass - bluegrass that is!

Yes. We have a family-friendly tour. We just ask that you closely supervise your child as we are a working distillery and there are things that your child could possibly get injured on otherwise.

Yes. There is a limit, though, imposed by the State ABC board. I think it is five items per person (over age 21, of course).
