The first micro Homemade Whiskey and Rum maker in the State of Alabama-Peaden Brothers Distillery--like Hunch Punch or Jungle Juice

Peaden Brothers Distillery is looking to be the first micro distillery in the State of Alabama since Prohibition.  The last distillery that produced whiskey in the state was Jack Daniels.  The Jack Daniels Company had established a distillery in Birmingham, AL during 1910.  The company moved to Alabama because Tennessee had enacted a state wide prohibition law.  However, the company closed the distillery around 1920 due to National Prohibition.  Since then, no company has distilled whiskey in the state.  We would like to bring whiskey back to Alabama.  Our goal is to be the official, original state whiskey.  It has been a dream which we hope comes true.  This can be possible with your help.  

We would like to follow in the foot steps of our family.  Relatives before us had created wine and whiskeys for enjoyment and sale.  My brother and I are going to bring those days back.  Our distillery plans are to create unique, fruit flavored whiskeys using old recipes the public will enjoy. Flavors like Jungle Juice or Hunch Punch. Our recipes will use fresh cherries, strawberries, apples, pecans, pears and other ingredients from our local area.  It will be a sweet, fruity flavor combine with a smooth, Southern whiskey taste.  Just close your eyes for a moment and breath deeply.  You can smell the golden aroma of our fruity, homemade whiskey.

Once we begin production of our new hand crafted products our goal is to provide jobs for our small community and utilize area resources.  The whiskeys we make will be made with fresh organic ingredients that will also help the area farmers.  Using the fresh produce of the local farmers will give them a new market for their harvest.  Plus, the left over grain will be give to the local farmers to feed the livestock.  This grain will contain protein to help nourish the animals. In the end, this will allow us to make a quality, fresh, craft made, artisan whiskey, while helping our community.  Our product will be smooth, fresh and discretely Southern.  

However, the art of hand crafted whiskeys are a costly endeavor:  we will require permits, insurance, bonds, etc. Your donation will help us secure equipment and other necessities to fulfill our aspiration.  My brother and I are scraping up every cent in order to purchase every piece of equipment within our means.  Our goal is to start so we have very little debt.  This way we can concentrate to promote the brand and focus on quality.  Even more, donations would help us buy supplies:  bottles, grain, sugar and all the other necessary ingredients to produce our product.  And, I almost forgot, decorations for our tap room.  We'll need paint, pictures, and other decorations showing the history of whiskey within our state.  Oh, and oak barrels.  We'll need several of them to produce our aged products.  Keep in mind we are starting on a shoestring.  Things are going to be tight at first.  But our goal is to produce a memorable, quality products that will use ingredients and resources of our community.  

People have been helpful in guiding us to achieve our goal.  They have helped in several ways that could lead us closer to reality.  Thanks for any help you can provide.  And please spread the word.  Share it with friends, family and anyone who like craft distilled whiskeys.  We want to make a memorable product that will be used for decades to come.    

Let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks again,
