Today, we make our white whiskey using the same timeworn recipe and rebel attitude as our namesake… And at 88 proof, Popcorn Sutton’s Tennessee White Whiskey is as pure and smooth as an Appalachian mountain stream.
“Jesus turned the water into wine, I turned it into likker.”
AMERICA’S ORIGINAL REBEL SPIRIT ™
Popcorn Sutton’s Tennessee White Whiskey takes its name from its creator, Marvin “Popcorn” Sutton, a legendary moonshiner from Cocke County, Tennessee. Using a 100 year old family recipe passed down through generations, Popcorn made his “likker” by hand, selling it out of the back of his Ford Model A truck.
“I reckon I’m the only one left that knows how to do it,
and do it right. Making top quality product,
that was all I ever done.”
CONTINUING THE TRADITION
In tribute to Popcorn’s legacy, we’ve built our distillery in Cocke County, Tennessee, the moonshine capital of the world. Located just a few miles from Popcorn’s home, and the backwoods where he made some of his finest, our new 50,000 square foot distillery was created to maintain the finest moonshining tradition. Our three massive copper pot stills are built from Popcorn’s designs and we make our product from mash to jar, keeping a close eye on clarity, purity and flavor – just like he did. The way we see it, the only difference between our “likker” and Popcorn’s is that we pay our taxes.
