The First Mini-Distillery
History Built From Tradition
The tradition of crafting small batches of Corn Whiskey beyond the watchful eyes of ‘revenuers’ is a part of our history. During the prohibition age, this tradition allowed patrons to experience some of the best whiskey and is part of the Appalachian region’s lore.
In 2002, Rodney Facemire obtained the license for Isaiah Morgan Distillery. Our distillery is West Virginia’s first mini-distillery and the smallest still in the United States. Isaiah Morgan products were initially only available in state-licensed spirits retailers and couldn’t be sold at the distillery.
Seeing how tourists were disappointed for not being able to purchase spirits at the site where they were created, Rodney saw it as an opportunity and conceived the vision of mini-distilleries, gathered a team of government and business leaders, and created a new industry for the state.
Today, tourists can visit our historic site, observe the crafting process, purchase a souvenir, and purchase 50ml and 750ml bottles of Southern Moon, Rye, Bourbon and Grappa spirits on-site!
