  • This was an unexpected stop, that turned out to be a memorable time! From the moment we stepped inside Copper Barrel Distillery our senses were lit with the atmosphere that our host Victoria so graciously shared with us. From the history of Moonshine via “Uncle Buck” and George, the owners, to the tour of the distillery; the head, tail and heart. No beat was skipped here! The moonshine taste samples were amazing and smooth, all natural with sustainability in mind. You must try their adult slushies, very unique! We left with several bottles of Moonshine and cannot wait to return! You must go here!
  • Visited with a buddy there Thursday afternoon Sept. 29th, 2022. Victoria was a terrific host and is the head bartender. Very informative and fun. The liquor is very smooth and leans more to a good rye rather than bourbon. They offer some interesting versions of fruit added to the base white moonshine. Well worth a stop now and again. Be sure to take home some goodies as we both did.
  • Very cool family run business. Authentic moonshine recipe passed down through generations and still operating by "Uncle" Buck and his neice. We were greeted by their 4 legged mascot and enjoyed tasting the cherry moonshine mixed with cheerwine next door at their restaurant.
  • Great tour and very friendly atmosphere. The tour is just long enough to keep you interested and engaged. Tasting is a lot of fun as well. Best coffee flavored moonshine I have ever tasted!
  • Decent (but small) cocktails and glass of wine at a fair price. We had two different brisket sandwiches. The amount of meat given is small. Brisket sandwich (hamburger bun) is $10. 5 pieces of Brisket- each 2"×1"×1/4" thick. Same amount on the cheese melt. The meat was good tasting and tender. Brisket cheese melt sandwich is $12.
