Hi Sally

Checked with my Dad, who is now 86 about the possibility in Monroe County.

He said that it would be likely to be Glace, W. Va. He also noted that a still could be legal if a license was obtained from the government and the spirits sold to the government as it was prohibited for people to be in private business for themselves i.e. selling to the public.

Obviously this is why W. Va. is known for its illegal stills---i.e. moonshine.
