Distilleries in Branson

Looking for something laid back and unique during your time in Branson? Spend an afternoon on a tasting tour of local spirits!

Copper Run Distillery

Begin your tour of local spirits just north of Branson at award-winning Copper Run Distillery, the first legal distillery in the Ozark Mountains since Prohibition ended in 1933. Tours are available, and their spirits tasting menu includes half-ounce samples of 6 spirits—2 moonshines, 2 whiskeys and 2 rums. They also have signature cocktails and infusions, as well as a selection of beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks. Have you ever wanted to make your own barrel of whiskey?

Missouri Ridge Distillery

Next on the spirits tour is Missouri Ridge Distillery, an award-winning, family-owned, small-batch artisan distillery located south of Copper Run (but still north of Branson!) featuring Corn and American Single Malt Whiskeys, Single Barrel Bourbon and Howlin’ Hounds Moonshine! They credit the delicious water in the area, due to the Ozark Mountains’ limestone base, and their time-honored family recipes for their ability to produce spirits that compete in aroma and flavor with any others that are on the market.

Crown Valley Distillery

Head back into Branson to the family-friendly Crown Valley Distillery, which specializes in whiskey but also offers complimentary tastings of a selection of their Missouri-made beers, ciders, wines and spirits, as well as free locally sourced food samples. They also offer special reserve tasting options for a small fee. While you’re there, be sure to take a tour of the distillery and check out the Crown Valley Bistro for a quick bite to eat.

Smith Creek Moonshine

Finally, head to Branson Landing for the only spot on your spirits tour that only features moonshine. It’s an experience you don’t want to miss! Smith Creek Moonshine has a tasting bar where you can sample all 12 of their unique moonshine flavors, such as sweet tea, apple pie, chocolate silk, lemon lime and more! Smith Creek Moonshine also offers a unique menu of gourmet hamburgers that perfectly pair with the exceptional moonshine!
