John Emerald Distilling Company is a family-run small-batch craft distillery from Opelika, Alabama that has been operational since 2014.It is the first legal distillery that opened in the state since the end of the Prohibition era, a year short of a hundred years later.It all started when John and his son Jimmy Sharp, both homebrewers, started looking into opening a brewery.Finding the market to be oversaturated, they turned to craft distilling instead and started rigorous training and education.They came upon an old cotton warehouse in Opelika, a small and business-friendly town where the mayor welcomed them with open arms.
