Where it all started

All About us

In the South, tracking down and drinking moonshine is a rite of passage. Whether it’s the booze’s rebellious history or its dangerous reputation. Moonshine has cemented a place in the culture at large.
We use family recipes and a tradition of small-batch distilling to give our Moonshine the same attention to detail as our ancestors.

how it's made

Learn about our distillery process, from start to finish.

.01

water

When Water Has Reached 165 Degrees, The Corn Grounded Into Meal Is Added And The Heat Is Turned Off To Stir And Let The Corn Set.

By sticking to family recipes, we put the same authenticity into our creations as the generations before us using the same time-tested methods and ingredients from days gone by.

.03

Wheat & barley

The malt comes from grains that have been wetted in order for them to sprout and then dried, leaving it full of enzymes, carbohydrates, and proteins. Once met, the target temperature is then malted and crushed. Grains are then added to convert the starch in the cornmeal into sugar.

.04

yeast

The most important ingredient in brewing. And the last one discovered because yeast is a single-celled organism. It is invisible to the naked eye. Adding the yeast starts the fermentation process. This mixture, called mash, becomes stirred thoroughly and heated in the still.

.05

distill

We are committed to respecting the traditions of our appalachian roots from the first drop to the last.
Distillation is the last step in the process of making moonshine. We use the same time-tested methods from days gone by. Dedicating 5 to 7 days to every batch we make to obtain our signature old-fashioned flavor.
