Artisanal Stone Burr Mill

Our Process

Artisanal Stone Burr Mill

Tennessee white corn is milled to a corn meal consistency in our artisanal stone burr mill

Fermenter

Our Process

Fermenter

Milled corn and pure cane sugar are then combined with "back ins" from the prior batch along with yeast and water from the Smoky Mountains to create our sour mash. During fermentation, the mash bubbles over 4-5 days.

Copper Pot Still

Our Process

Copper Pot Still

Fermented "corn beer" is transferred to the Copper Pot Still where the mash is heated until the alcohol vaporizes. This is the first distillation.

Copper Distillation Column

Our Process

Copper Distillation Column

As it moves through the copper distillation column, it condenses and is redistilled 5 more times for a total of 6. The copper removes sulfites from the alcohol vapor.

Spirit Safe

Our Process

Spirit Safe

As the liquid is cooled and poured off the tap in the Spirit Safe, the new moonshine's heads, hearts, and tails are collected and separated. Only our hearts are kept from final bottling.

Sugarlands Shine

Our Process

Sugarlands Shine

The "backins" from the pot still take on a new life when they are blended with the next run. The authentic Sugarlands Shine Silver Cloud is born and savored.
