HOW IT'S MADE
It takes 5 to 7 days to make each batch of shine.
01/ adding the 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.

Smoky Mountains Authenticity
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/ malting the grains
wheat & barley
Like traditional moonshiners
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 the target temperature is met, malted and crushed grains are added to convert the starch in the corn meal into sugar.

05/ the batch is ready
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.
Great flavors, locally owned, family operated.
