  • Passing through Jacksonville and saw this was recommended on Trip Advisor. Staff was very knowledgeable, and the tour and tasting were interesting. Too bad that the law does not allow them to ship...

  • You shouldn't miss Waltons Distillery. We visited on a Thursday afternoon and were the only customers at the time. Because of staffing at that time we could not do a tour but we're able to do the FREE tasting. They allow you to taste all 8 of their products. They have moonshine (different flavors), bourbon, and whiskey. A neat bit of trivia is that their method for making moonshine came from a gentlemen that operated an illegal still for years. Their gift shop has a lot of branded items. You can also get moonshine candles. There is a gravel drive and parking is not well defined so just find a place out of the way.
  • We had so much fun!! We've been in town for a week visiting our son & his family, planning on leaving this evening after we pick the grandkids up from school. Sitting at their house this morning, we started googling what to do in the area & ended up here! So glad we did. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door, and everyone was incredibly friendly! We did a tasting first, and then a tour. The place isn't super big what space they have, they make the most of it & provide a lot of insight to their business, a few smiles & some great conversation. Before we left, we got to learn about their free, family friendly, music events in April & May. Sure wish we lived closer so we could attend but we'll definitely be back when in the area!
