John Emerald Distilling Company

John Emerald Distilling is a small batch craft distillery located in beautiful downtown Opelika. Their mission is to honor their forefathers by making the finest Spirits available. Stop by for a taste test, tour the facility, or try one of their craft cocktails! Experience the light, crisp and refreshing Hugh Wesley’s Gin – made with hand-picked Alabama Juniper Berries. Do you prefer vodka? The Elizabeth Vodka is the first of its kind in Alabama – a corn-based vodka that is triple filtered to smooth out its demeanor. John Emerald Distillery features more Spirits including John’s Alabama Single Malt, Spurgeon’s Barrel Aged Rum, and Gene’s Spiced Rum. JED is wicked good.
