Our Story

TwinCreeks_-00208

 


We pride ourselves in age-old distilling methods, locally sourced ingredients, and an authentic experience. Owner and Head Distiller, Chris Prillaman is a direct descendent of bootleggers, who all made a living crafting spirits in the hills and hollers of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains.

Twin Creeks Distillery produced and sold the first legal batch of liquor in Franklin County, Virginia's "Moonshine Capital" since prohibition. The original brand Franklin County's Finest was a sell-out and stands as a collector's item today.
