Twin Creeks Distillery
Owner and Head Distiller, Chris Prillaman is a direct descendent of bootleggers, all of whom made a living making spirits in the hills and hollers of Southwest Virginia. It wasn’t until 2015 that the family finally 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 remains as a collector’s item today. When the Prillaman family opened a tasting room and store of their own, they decided to rebrand and focus more on their personal story. The logo and name of the company is centered around the family’s background: Twin Creeks is the road where they grew up and the fiddle represents the owner’s other love of old time music.

Feel like you walked up on a still place in the woods with restored and rebuilt equipment that was snagged from the hollers or given to the owner from good buddies who have now passed on. A copper “submarine type” still sits in the corner at Twin Creeks Distillery and the knowledgeable staff is known to have some good old stories to share.
