Hello from Tennessee

8 posts in this topic

I would like to bid you all a fond hello from TN. I have waited a long time for the opportunity to open a craft distillery close to my home, and am currently several hours away from that becoming a reality! Waiting on the local liquor referendums to pass after this election, and if they do I am certified to start the journey. I will be here much regardless of the outcome, and hope to make a few friends along the way. Also... I noticed, from what I've browsed, there aren't many posts from Tennessee. (I may have missed them) I would love to hear from any craft distiller currently operating in that state! Please and thank you!

Good luck! We have quite a few chiller systems in TN, latest in Sevierville.

That place is booming lately!  I appreciate the well wishes! The laws passed late last night, and I started this journey today. It's a daunting task, to be sure, but one I believe well worth it. Sent out my letters of intent to the county, and it's municipalities. Next step is to start the business end of this ordeal prior to starting the building. I guess now... I should say hold on tight, y'all! Lmfao!

Hi FQU8847,

 

I grew up in Townsend and most of my people came out of what is today the Great Smokey Mountain National park.  We have equipment in several distilleries in Sevierville and Pigeon Forge.  If you are interested in equipment let me know and I will give you the contact info for distilleries with our equipment that you can visit in your area.

Thanks, y'all! I'm going to be located in Ducktown, TN. Pretty much right on the TN, NC, GA borders. I think I have the equipment part halfway sorted out. (Though only time will tell) Gonna save your info just in case, southernhighlander!

Resourcelady, we will have an extremely small batch still for startup. Plan on making a white whiskey smoother than vodka, but with a sweet, floral flavor. Also plan on offering several different flavors of liquor from this same base spirit. Want to start putting some whiskey, and bourbon back to age ASAP! Will update when I'm actually getting closer to starting this haul!

Please let me know if you're looking for vendors for barrels, charcoal and stills. I've got that and more covered to help out folks just like you.

Not updated on our website, we are now offering cooling systems and steam boilers- both shipped from TN if you want a visit to either!
