Drinkable Images: Bootleggers Moonshine Distillery, Hartford, Tennessee

Bootleggers Distillery, in the heart of eastern Tennessee moonshine country, is quite likely the smallest legally operating distilleries in the U.S. It’s also one of the newest, having opened earlier this year. In addition to a white dog whiskey, Bootleggers makes a Charred version, aged for several months with wood. The distillery also produces a number of fruit-infused moonshines, as well as a Hot Toddie, all packed, of course, in mason jars.

About Jeff Cioletti

I’m Jeff Cioletti and The Drinkable Globe marries my two greatest passions: fine drink and travel. The search for the former usually drives the latter. I'm the author of The Year of Drinking Adventurously. When I’m not traveling and drinking— aww, hell, who am I kidding, even when I am—I'm editor-at-large of Beverage World magazine and its companion site, beverageworld.com. I’ve been at Beverage World since January 2003. I’ve been interviewed on beverage-related topics for CNN, Fox Business News, CNBC, Beer Sessions Radio, Canada's ROB TV, NPR, BBC World, BBC Radio, The Associated Press, The New York Post, Financial Times, Investors Business Daily, Advertising Age, WCBS-TV and several other media outlets. Beyond the journalism gig, I’m also a filmmaker; I wrote, produced and co-directed the feature film, “Beerituality,” a comedy set in the world of craft beer. The film is available on at http://www.storenvy.com/products/510365-beerituality-dvd and can be streamed and downloaded at amazon.com

  1. Well this is a cool blog to stumble upon! I love whiskey! Not how sure I feel about moonshine however. As a descendent of Scottish immigrants, I have to maintain a preference for a dram from the Old Country! Cheers!
