Srnoke Hole Cavern, because it afforded cover, a nice stream of clear cold water, and plenty of storage space, was chosen as a spot for making the corn whiskey, and the old s t i l l remains to this day, along with jugs used for storing the finished product, and may be seen when visiting the Cavern.
