Short Mountain Shine now in Middle Tennessee stores

July 18th, 2012 7 comments

It’s official! You can now buy a bottle of our 105 Proof Authentic Tennessee moonshine in stores across Middle Tennessee.

It’s quite a site to see our county’s history and heritage in a bottle on a store shelf, and we are mighty grateful to all the support we’ve gotten from thousands of you who have visited our distillery since we opened in March.

We also want to thank all the retail store owners and their family and friends who came out to our official Middle Tennessee launch party last night at City House. The crowd was about twice what we expected, but Peg Leg Porker Pitmaster Carey Bringle kept everyone delightfully stuffed with a whole pig. The Jake Leg Stompers brought the Bluegrass while the DrinkMusicCity crew kept drinks flowing with four new Moonshine cocktail recipes we’ll share with you in a couple of days.

Here are a few stores that carry Short Mountain Shine in the Middle Tennessee region. Follow us on Facebook for future launch parties in Knoxville, Memphis and Chattanooga!

Short Mountain Distillery announces Grand Opening

March 9th, 2012 1 comment

Watch the video to see Billy Kaufman announce our Grand Opening April 21, 2012. We are still having our March 23 and 24 soft opening for friends and neighbors where you can enjoy a short tour and some bluegrass music, eat some BBQ, meet the moonshiners and taste and purchase our authentic Tennessee Moonshine, but demand for the first bottles has been so overwhelming we know we won’t have enough by March 23.

600 specially signed bottles from our first batch are being set aside for everyone who requested one. At this point, we can no longer reserve any more of these specially signed bottles. You can begin purchasing them at the Still House Store beginning March 23. Just give our clerk your name if you are on the list. Follow us on Facebook to see announcements on availability, or come out and see us April 21.

We will be open Fridays and Saturdays until our grand opening April 21 when we will then operate normal business hours of Tuesday through Saturday 9am – 4pm. We look forward to seeing you!

A sneak peek at Short Mountain Shine

January 27th, 2012 No comments


Yesterday, I showed you a glimpse of our federally approved label for Short Mountain Shine along with the news that we signed distribution deals with all four regions of the state of Tennessee.

I thought I’d throw this photo of the bottle out there after a failed attempt yesterday to photograph the bottle for an upcoming tourism pamphlet. This isn’t an image we’d use, but it showed just enough to tease, and I’m a teaser. You can tell we used a sample label sent to us by our printer.

You’ll be able to taste a sample and purchase a bottle at our distillery on Short Mountain in Woodbury, TN once we open in late March. Shortly after that, it will be in stores throughout Middle Tennessee’s 36 county distribution region.

If it sounds familiar, that’s because it’s already famous. Most old-timers in Middle Tennessee know something about it, and it was sung about by Uncle Dave Macon on the October 1939 NBC television debut of the Grand Ole Opry. Who knows? Maybe one day the bottle will make a special appearance on one of country music’s biggest nights.

Short Mountain Shine is a respectable 105 proof authentic Tennessee Moonshine made from a family recipe handed down for generations. As Billy likes to say, “It’s the best moonshine ever made, made even better.”
