Don Walton Jr., Owner of Walton Distillery

A copper still that was used years ago, in the woods in secret, sits on display at Walton’s Distillery in Jacksonville, where moonshine is once again produced by the Walton family. Visitors are invited to see the old still, as well as the newer working stills, and taste the product made from a recipe that has been in the family for several generations.

Walton says visitors will leave “knowing what we do, being more enlightened regarding moonshine.” He adds confidently, “we make a good product.”
