Distilling roots run deep for Owen native

-A A +A

SPARTA, Ky. – When James Neeley set sail from northern Ireland in 1740 for what would soon become the United States, he brought with him copper pot stills – tools of the trade for what would eventually become a way of life for his descendants in Owsley County, Ky.
Eleven generations later, that same tradition is still going strong and is now shared with hundreds of visitors each month at a sprawling knotty-pine structure located on a lot adjacent to the Kentucky Speedway.
