About Us

"Dry County Distillery… What can I say about us?

Let's start with quality. We offer only the best, but don't take my word for it. I dare you to compare our Copper Still Vodka to another kind of vodka, or perhaps our Gin with another brand. We're sure you'll come back.

As for quantity… We're a very small, locally owned, and family-run distillery. At this juncture, we can't really compete with the big dogs quantity-wise, but why should we worry about that anyway? Our vodka tastes like water. Can you say the same for another brand?

Our variety is good so far, and it's growing. We offer gin, vodka, whiskey, award-winning anise, and we have others in production. We also take requests, so if your great-great granddaddy was a moonshiner or your family has a favorite recipe from the old country, bring us the recipe and we'll happily take a crack at it.

Now for the individuals. I told you this is a family-run company and I certainly didn't lie.

Howard and Jennifer Johnston are co-owners of this company. Among their various other responsibilities, Howard runs the still and tests recipes while Jennifer manages the storefront and works with you, the customer, to make sure your experience is the best.

As for me, I am their daughter Krystal, and I'm the communications person.

We also have a mascot, Shiner, who keeps Jennifer company when there aren't any customers around."
