Home Distilling Now Legal In WV

April 1st, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Governor Jim Justice has signed into law legislation that will now officially allow West Virginia residents to distill their own alcohol at home.  If over the age of 21, a family of two can distill up to 10 gallons per year – the amount allowed depends on the size of the household.  Originally, the legislation had a limit of 50 gallons per year for a 2-person household – but that was scaled back by the West Virginia General Assembly.
