The doors opened at Short Mountain Distillery for free tours and tastings last week, which will continue to be offered every Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. until the distillery holds its grand opening on April 21.After the grand opening, the facility will assume normal business hours, Tuesday-Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.The distillery is producing legal whiskey with authentic Tennessee moonshine recipes, and using corn grown and milled on site at a 300-acre working farm.“We are growing organically here as a sustainable practice,” distillery representative John Whittemore told the Review. “We will take people on a guided tour of the stillhouse, the ‘Shiner Shack,’ and the spring we get our water from, and give them an overview of the product, but a bigger part of the tour will be to show them how tied with agriculture this product is,” Whittemore explained.Customers will also be able to purchase Short Mountain Shine, a 105 proof authentic Tennessee Moonshine made at the distillery from a local family recipe in stores across the state of Tennessee.Short Mountain Distillery is located at 119 Mountain Spirits Lane in Woodbury.
