We're a small batch artisan distillery located in Clarksville, Tennessee. Our commitment to this town is only surpassed by our commitment to the quality of our spirits. The idea for a distillery in Clarksville was born 3 years ago, and after many long days and late nights, we're getting ready to finally open our doors. This project has very much been a community effort, and that's why we want you to be part of the first whiskey we ever produce.

Currently our building is nearing the end of construction, and we'll be spending the next few weeks fine tuning the distillation equipment. At our current pace, the first spirits will flow off of our stills in February.

The hard work we'll be bottling up in our spirits is a representation of the hardworking and unyielding character of our town. The spirits that embody this attitude most are your Tennessee Whiskey and Bourbon. The money we're raising from the Kickstarter campaign will go directly towards the grain and barrels needed to craft these fine products.

When you look on the back bar of your favorite drinking establishment, we want you to be able to proudly say you played a vital role in bringing that fine spirit to life. In return for your contribution, we've put together some rewards you're sure to enjoy.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we'll face is Father Time. The Tennessee Whiskey and Bourbon barrels you'll be helping us purchase take an average of 4 years to properly age our quality products. To put it simply, every day our doors are open we'll be placing cash on a shelf (in the form of full barrels), and we won't be able to touch that cash for 4 years. If we can keep our lights on for the 4 year wait, then we'll start seeing some return on the barrels we put away in year 1.

    Be one of the first to see the magic! Before we open to the public, we'll be hard at work behind closed doors producing our Fine Tennessee Spirits in preparation for the grand opening. You'll be the first to lay eyes on the production process ... and we'd be lying if we said you wouldn't get to taste what's coming off the stills!

    Barrel Adoption Program:

    There's nothing like becoming a parent ... especially an adoptive parent of one of our 53 gallon whiskey barrels. In return for your loving and kindheartedness, the empty barrel will be yours to keep after we age and bottle the spirit.

    Since you'll be adopting at birth, you choose the name that will be displayed on the barrel head. Whether it's your name, your company name, or your dog's name - it's up to you! These adopted barrels will be placed front and center in our barrel warehouse for all visitors to see.

    Kickstarter will not allow us to offer our spirits as rewards, so we're not offering you 5 bottles from your adopted barrel.

    *Reward must be picked up in person at the distillery.
