    Does anybody know of one, and are the products actually drinkable?

    American Born Moonshine may fit the bill. A buddy of mine gave me one of their T-shirts which had the Gadsden Flag on the back of it. Of course, that flag can be commandeered by anyone, but it seemed appropriate coming from him. He worked there a few years ago and he was very Libertarian, but he’s since passed away. They’re based in Nashville. I can’t find a website for them, but I believe they’re a pretty small outfit. Be careful searching for them online as most of their products have “XXX” in them. On second thought, you might want to leave the XXX in there!

    As far as drinkability goes, I’m not really a moonshine guy so I really can’t say.

    I’ve linked to these locals before:

    Three Rivers Distilling Co. | Fort Wayne, Indiana | Craft Distillery

    I don’t know them personally, and have only amateur bourbon-tasting abilities, but find their product drinkable, and their politics are probably very 2A, given the area.

    Not yet. The question remains open.

    I was going to suggest Finger Lakes Distilling in NY based on conversations I've had with their master distiller; however a Google search tells me he left FLD back in 2016 and is now making equipment and consulting in the industry. I don't know what the corporate culture is like there now, but Tom was a solid guy and definitely conservative.

    I am a distiller who is conservative, but unfortunately the owners are both Biden Bois. I’ll see if I can find anyone at the next conference, if we’re not out of business by then.
