Copper Run Distillery Keeps an Ozark Tradition Alive

Jim Blansit’s family tree has deep roots in the Ozarks. He’s not afraid to share some family history that includes a taste of moonshine…that spirit that fuels visions of moonshiners outrunning the law, stills in the backwoods, and late night deliveries of that good corn whiskey that grandpa made.

This long family avocation led Blansit to open Copper Run Distillery in 2009 on family property.
