"The distillery was originally run by my 3x-great grandfather. It was one of the largest distilleries in the country in its day and produced the original Tennessee Whiskey but Prohibition shut the business down. Now my brother and I are working to bring the whole business back, one whiskey bottle at a time. We have tours, tastings and a gift shop/bottle shop and it's where I spend the majority of my day a-makin' whiskey!"
