The Call Family Distillery operates in the “moonshine capital of the world,” Wilkes County, North Carolina. The Call family roots run deep in moonshine distilling, and the operation is family owned to this day. Seventh generation descendants of Reverend Daniel Call, who taught Jack Daniels how to make whiskey, the Calls make moonshine from their original recipe using locally sourced cornmeal and other ingredients.

Located on the banks of the Yadkin River in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, the Call Family Distillers produce spirits and original moonshine of the highest quality using a one-of-a-kind direct steam injection distillation technique.
