Tennessee white corn is milled to a corn meal consistency in our artisanal stone burr mill.
01. Milled corn & pure cane sugar are then combined with “backins” from the prior batch along with yeast & water from the Smoky Mountains to create our sour mash.
02. During fermentation the mashbubbles over 4-5 days.
Fermented “corn beer” is transferred to the Copper Pot Still where the mash is heated until the alcohol vaporizes. This is the first distillation.
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.
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 for final bottling.
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.
