Fine Distilled Spirits

It’s a family tradition.

With American family roots dating back to 1630, we have a long tradition of distilling in our blood.

The Bullock Distillery was organized in 2017 by Dusta Tanner, John Bullock and Tighe Bullock when the trio remodeled the historic building at 121 Washington Street, West, Charleston, West Virginia.  

Dusta and the Tanner family have a long history of making moonshine in Roane County, West Virginia.

The Bullock family has produced spirits in Robeson County, North Carolina since before the American Revolution. 

Both families are proud of their distilling traditions.

Our Special Ingredient?

Water.

Where does The Bullock Distillery draw its water from?
Bullock’s Cave, Falling Spring Mountain, Greenbrier County, West Virginia!

Falling Spring Mountain is truly a geologic phenomena, acting as a buffer zone for the hydrologic gradient of the Karst water system of the Greenbrier Valley. Our system in Greenbrier Valley drains deep groundwater from the base of Droop Mountain and Falling Spring Mountain.

Unlike other distilleries, The Bullock Distillery does not use reverse osmosis or carbon filtration to treat our water.

Why? Because our limestone water lacks the heavy elements present in the water of most distilleries. And it strips the natural sweet flavors of pure Karst limestone water!

Bacteria and viruses are taken care of during the fermentation and distillation processes. This ensures that only the mountain’s natural limestone filtration system touches our water.

Our Reviews

I was there during the early conversations. I visited the water source and camped for a weekend. Now it’s finally a bottled product and reality.

Everything was great, Tighe. You done it, boy!

Picture taken in my studio for the night. No, I won’t be drinking it during my shift…maybe.

Sipping on some @thebullockdistillery 3 year rye on this fine Fryeday evening! 🥳

I grabbed this bottle a couple weeks ago and I’m really into it. It’s Bullock’s second expression of rye (their first being a 2 year). The nose is very grain forward, with hints of fruit here and there. The palate is “juicy” and feels fantastic while it lasts, but feels a little thin. That’s fine by me though, because the finish is what I’m here for: peppery and spicy, it keeps a tingle for quite a few minutes after a sip!

All in all, it’s a great bottle and I’m really looking forward to trying their bourbon once it’s available. Make sure to support your local distilleries people!

The atmosphere was amazing, and the staff were so knowledgeable. We done a tasting and went on a tour! 10/10!

A few weeks ago, Shawn and I (finally) checked out The Bullock Distillery. We should have gone sooner! We took a tour of the distillery with John Bullock andDusta M. Tanner. Then, Royce Tanner gave us samples to try. Shawn keeps repeating that it is the best vodka he has ever had, simply describing it as smooth. They also have some locally made items for sale. Go check them out.
