I recently had the chance to tour the Call Family Distillery. I was invited by Aaron Brown, owner of The Car Shop and builder/driver of the worlds fastest rat rod not to mention all his other accomplishments. He introduced me to the family, who were very gracious and informative about the history of moonshining.
The Call Family Distillers distillery is located in Wilkesboro, NC on the banks of the Yadkin River. Known in some parts of the world as Hell’s Half Acres - Call Section is a place that was once home to some of the toughest individuals in western North Carolina. It was due to the high volume of illegal whiskey production in this area that led federal revenue officers to dub Wilkes County, NC - The Moonshine Capital of the World.
