Black Draft Distillery

Martinsburg, West Virginia

Our craft distillery proudly produces Straight Bourbon Whiskey, First Harvest Moonshine, Hannisville™ Straight Rye Whiskey, Black Draft Vodka, Rise & Shine Coffee Vodka, and White Julep Spearmint Vodka in Martinsburg, West Virginia.
Black Draft Distillery is the first grain-to-glass craft distillery in Martinsburg, West Virginia since prohibition.
We started as a dream to produce handcrafted spirits from West Virginia, using unique and all-natural ingredients.
Founded in 2014 here at the gateway to the Shenandoah Valley, Black Draft joined the growing number of artisans seeking to blend our techniques with the West Virginia traditions of times past. We chose to first produce our First Harvest Moonshine because it reflected our commitment to following the generations of folks producing fine corn whiskey.
We’ve since added Straight Bourbon, Rye Whiskey, Rise & Shine Coffee Moonshine, White Julep Moonshine, and our renowned Black Draft Vodka. Each is perfect for mixing or sipping straight over ice.
