Axe Handle Distilling

Axe Handle is a family distillery in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. Inside the custom built Old Virginia Hand Hewn Log Home facility (another family owned and operated business for 40 years), there is a production room, tasting room, merchandise/retail space, and a wrap-around porch to relax on. Axe Handle partners with local farmers and strive to become 100 percent locally sourced for grains; corn, barley, wheat and rye.

Besides their bottled spirits, they have a great selection of engraved glasses, t-shirts, hats, gift baskets and other items. They also host sip & paint/craft events, food trucks, and other special events.
