For $20,000 you could be the proud owner of this authentic moonshine still designed, built and no doubt USED by Popcorn Sutton for the brewing of his famous likker!

Here's the link to the item's eBay page. And here's the official description...

Up for sale is a genuine Copper Moonshine Still that was used by the legendary Popcorn Sutton of the appalachians. This item is being sold for historical purposes only, not for actual use. This still is 45-50 years old and has a 110 gallon pot!

Rare and collectible, indeed!! I would love to own this... or anything that was the handiwork of Marvin "Popcorn" Sutton: a character who was truly an American original.

Tip o' the hat to Eric Smith for an awesome find!!

This still could NOT have been designed and built by Popcorn unless Popcorn built it when he 14 years of age. It is well established Popcorn started moonshining while in his mid 30's.

Popcorn said he was drinking when he was six yrs old. I just watched the Moonshine series on discovery. He talked about starting out in the moonshine business when he was very young. I myself don't have a clue when he started. I'm just passing along what he said on the show. May he RIP!

I just wish he would have taught me his recipe, I'd keep the tradition alive, Popcorn was the best there ever was.

Popcorn told me that he did build this one.
