Copper Run Distillery

The next time you’re looking to while away a weekend afternoon in a moonshine-fueled haze, consider heading to Copper Run Distillery in Walnut Shade. The distillery is the work of Jim Blansit, who began making moonshine in his basement 20 years ago. Today Copper Run is not only churning out barrels of booze, but it also boasts a full bar that is open on Saturdays and Sundays and is available for private parties during the week. Stop by on the weekends, and catch a tour narrated by Blansit where you can learn about the distilling process. After you’ve seen behind the scenes, relax and enjoy live music.

If the weather is nice, be sure to grab a seat on the large deck that overlooks the surrounding woods. In chillier months, snag a seat at the bar. No matter what Mother Nature is doing, Copper Run offers up cocktail options that are sure to satisfy even the most discerning palate. We’re partial to the Ozarks Winter Warmer on cold days, which is made with espresso-infused rum, coffee and cream. The Moonshine Mary is also good. The drink substitutes moonshine for vodka for an Ozarkian twist. There’s plenty to enjoy at Copper Run, just remember to bring a designated driver. 

Free tours, weekends at noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., bar open Sat.–Sun., noon–6 p.m., live music, 2–5 p.m.; Copper Run Distillery, 1901 Day Road, Walnut Shade; 417-587-3456
