The heart of the Casey Jones Distillery is an all copper fire powered square still and the key to making our spirits so special. With the Casey Jones still, we capture the rich tradition of craft – a process through and through proven to produce a superior, smoother product. A process that’s been in the family nearly 100 years since way back in the 1930s.
A Family Tradition
In Golden Pond, Kentucky Casey Jones was a legend. In the 1930s to the 1960s, a time when it was a risk to be this kind of legend, Casey Jones built an estimated 150 handmade “coffin” stills – a square design that helped to make these stills portable. Jones said they’d “fit just right” in the bed of a wagon or pickup truck.
Just like the still, every bottle of Casey Jones Distillery is handcrafted.
Truly Handcrafted Spirits
That old school still design carries over into the flavor that goes into every bottle of Casey Jones Distillery spirits. Our locally-grown corn is ground at our distillery. The ground corn is then turned in to mash by our Founder, Master Distiller and Casey Jones’ grandson, Arlon Casey Jones (AJ). Each batch of moonshine is personally cooked and loaded by one of Casey’s crew. To make sure that every drop that is bottled is the best, each gallon that is run is separated – gallon by gallon. We only include the moonshine that meets our taste and quality standards.
Take a Tour, Take a Sip
Take a tour through the history of Golden Pond, Kentucky. We’re born in to this handcrafted spirit. We hope that you’ll take a tour, take a sip, and join us in appreciating this legendary Kentucky moonshine.

Casey’s Cut 92 – Our Signature Spirit
The same recipe that was once illegal during the Prohibition-era can now be legally enjoyed. Casey’s Cut 92 is the original Golden Pond, Kentucky still-crafted moonshine. It’s a spirit distilled from 50% corn and 50% cane. Casey’s Cut is our signature spirit. It’s a spirit that’s meant to be sipped slowly so that you can taste that historic experience as you drink the once hush-hush Jones family recipe moonshine.
Taste that hint of Kentucky corn as you sip this fine, small batch 92 Proof/46% alcohol by volume corn whiskey. Learn more here.
Distillers Choice: Ever wonder what someone might choose as their drink of choice? AJ thinks Casey Jones would have picked 92. Because of its smooth taste and feel, its taste of the corn of prohibition and the heat that finally comes as you swallow – it’s real, real Golden Pond moonshine from start to finish.
Casey’s Barrel Cut Moonshine
Casey’s Cut original moonshine is produced in small-batches and our Barrel Cut Moonshine is produced in even smaller batches. Our barrel cut starts out with our Casey’s Cut Moonshine then ages for a spell in a charred white oak barrel. It’s a spirit enjoyed by connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike. You can enjoy it straight up, on ice, or use it to make some amazing craft cocktails.

Casey’s Cut Peach Moonshine
Fascinating flavors seem to come from the warm regions of the South and Peach is a great example. It’s a fruity but not too sweet taste that makes it one of the favorites. And the best way to understand the taste is to open a bottle and enjoy a sip! Try it with a tea or mixed with ice cream. On the rocks or just chilled are good ways to get peach enjoyment.
