The Backwoods Moonshine Museum is located in Old Landing at 791 Evelyn Road, in Lee County and is open on the weekends. They have received their stamp and passports to give visitors when they tour this authentic museum full of moonshiner history and artifacts. The museum was built by Donnie Benton and Teresa Mays who were on season 8 of the Discovery Channel’s Moonshiners Show. They are not offering tastings of their shine at the moment but bottles of their legal label of Huckleberry Moonshine can be purchased at the Boneyard Well liquor store in Beattyville located across the bridge near Shell Mart. Call 606-567-7703 for more info. It really is an awesome experience, not only traveling out the ridge on the crooked road, but the gem of a museum at the end.
