Member Since 2016
Established in late 2012, Moonrise Distillery is located in the foothills of the Southern Appalachian mountains as you enter the City of Clayton in Rabun County, Georgia . This location was chosen for its rich moonshining history and to compliment the local area by providing jobs, promoting local history and tourism trade to people traveling through this area.
At Moonrise Distillery, we produce high quality Whiskey, Bourbon and fruit Brandies, with all ingredients coming from local farmers and sources. By following this concept it is our goal to make a positive impact on the local economy.
We currently custom manufacture small batch products for other distilleries as well as barrel age and store our own products. We operate a tasting room and offer plant tours. Note that current State of Georgia regulations do not allow us to sell our product on site.
Our modern stills and cookers are designed just like our Appalachian forefathers used but with a few modern conveniences. We feel this design allows our product to retain the most flavor and capture the true concept of mountain spirits.
If the front gate is open, come on in. We enjoy the company and showing you the distillery!
