Artisan spirits crafted the old fashioned way

About Us

Our History

We’re doing things at Moonrise Distillery like they’ve been done since the early 1950s. While at times it seems like an old-fashioned, inefficient process, our use of tried and true methods and time consuming double-distillation removes impurities for a more refined sipping bourbon and rye whiskey. And unlike most distillers, we let our spirits tell us when they are ready - aging by taste and not by time. 

Artisan Crafted

Pairing the spirit with the perfect barrel is imperative to producing the pleasant butter and vanilla notes characteristic of Moonrise Georgia Bourbon and Rye Whiskey. The proper amount of “toast” and “char” open pores in the brand new American white oak and caramelizes the natural sugars in the wood. And of course the wood in our barrels is first aged a minimum of 9 months outdoors.

Award-Winning Products

Our bourbon and rye products enjoy national and international recognition and are currently in distribution across 7 states. First produced in 2013 the aged products were introduced to market after 3 full years of aging in 30 gallon barrels in 2017. 

Since their introduction the spirits have won 3 gold medals in international competitions at the Global Spirit Awards in Las Vegas, MicroLiquor Spirit awards in Los Angelos and the International Spirit Competition in New York City. Both the bourbon and rye have recently been rated 92 and 90 respectively by Tasting Panel Magazine - the authority in the spirit market.
