John Emerald Distilling Company is a family-run small batch craft distillery from Alabama. John Sharp and his son founded the John Emerald Distilling Company — the first legal distillery in Alabama since Prohibition — in the tiny town of Opelika, naming it after John’s father.
Initially home brewers, the father son duo turned to craft distilling after meticulous training and education. They make a Rum, Spiced Rum, Gin, Vodka, and their signature Alabama Single Malt Whiskey. John Emerald Alabama Single Malt Whiskey is a true Single Malt made with a Southern flare.
The cornerstone of their lineup (the distillery’s namesake) is the John Emerald Alabama Single Malt Whiskey. A hybrid between Bourbon and Scotch Whisky, this John Emerald Spirit has smooth and sweet notes of vanilla, honey, baking spice and oak.
