Legal corn whiskey has been available for years from a distillery in Georgia that sells it as "Georgia Moon."
There was a guy here in KY who wanted to start making it commercially five or six years ago, but I haven't heard much about him lately.

It has always been legal to make your own spirits for your own use up to a certain maximum of so much a year - don't remember the maximum, but it's in the 2-10 gallon range.

I stand (set) corrected. I thought I remembered as a youngun that it was legal to distill alcohol up to a limit, but either I got it wrong or they changed the law.... here's from the haws' mouth...

S6: Have you heard about the science fair project or school project where a student: a.. Builds a homemade still,
b.. Lets leftover food scraps ferment and turn into alcohol,
c.. Burns the alcohol in a lantern, and
d.. Compares the alcohol to other sources of energy? A. Well, under current law and regulations, we cannot allow you to conduct experiments involving distillation of alcohol at your home.
As an alternative, Federal law allows us to issue a permit for an alcohol fuel plant, or AFP. Under this type of permit, experiments with alcohol fuels can be conducted at locations properly qualified with ATF.
