Dawsonville Moonshine Distillery offers genuine moonshine distilled in the heart of Dawsonville, GA, the "Moonshine Capital of the World." Our traditional recipes are from more than 150 years ago, which have been passed down from many generations. We currently operate under Free Spirits Distillery, a nod to Wood's grandfather, Simmie Free, and the other free-spirited moonshiners of the Appalachians.

We currently have hand-crafted Corn Whiskey, using traditional recipes handed down from generations from the original moonshinin' bad boys of Appalachia. Stay tuned, as we will have more hand-crafted products coming soon.

Where else would you find a legal distillery besides under the same roof as City Hall and the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame? Only in Dawsonville!
