America’s Original Rebel Spirit™

Popcorn Sutton Original Small Batch Recipe takes its name from its creator, Marvin “Popcorn” Sutton, a legendary bootlegger 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.

Today, we make Popcorn Sutton using the same timeworn recipe and rebel attitude as our namesake…And at 88 proof, Popcorn Sutton Original Small Batch Recipe is as pure and smooth as an Appalachian mountain stream.

The Original XXX Popcorn Sutton Small Batch Recipe

“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 built our distillery in Cocke County, Tennessee, 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 Popcorn’s finest traditions with our three massive copper pot stills built to Popcorn’s historical design. We make our product from mash to bottle, keeping a close eye to clarity, purity and flavor-just like he did. The way we see it, the only difference between our “likker” and Popcorn is that we pay our taxes.
