In May of 2007, moonshine and racing legend Junior Johnson became part owner of Piedmont Distillers and together we introduced Junior Johnson’s Midnight Moon. It is based on the Johnson family’s generations-old moonshine recipe. It is also born in a copper still, made from corn, crafted in small batches and triple distilled. While our first two spirits are moonshines, Piedmont Distillers does not consider itself strictly a moonshine distillery. Rather, our focus is on hand-crafted, superior quality spirits that are made one small batch at a time. We are constantly innovating new spirits that embrace distilling traditions and ingredients of the region, excite the palate and the senses, and offer people something different than what’s typically on the store shelves. Piedmont Distillers is a small operation with fewer than ten employees. We are located in the town of Madison (pop. 2000). The distillery is housed in the town’s former train station built in 1915. Madison, North Carolina is exactly what you might imagine. A small, Southern town filled with kind folks, many of whom have lived here their entire lives.
