About

The main reason this campaign was initiated is to give people who enthusiastically want to be a part of bringing Gutter Bound Distillery to fruition, an opportunity to be part of the distillery start-up efforts and help make the dream a reality. Let's build this Distillery from the ground up together! The vision for Gutter Bound Distillery came to be a little over a year ago, when my wife, Jec, sat and listened as my buddy Kyle and I laid out this crazy dream we had to start a Distillery. She jumped on board, and the rest is history. From that point forward we have been pursuing this dream working hard to make it a reality.  

The Distillery will be located in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee and will produce Corn Whiskey, or "Moonshine," that is steeped in tradition, and will be Gutter Bound Distillery's primary creation. The recipe itself has deep roots tracing back generations. Bourbon, along with Rum and Vodka, will round out the production list. 

 This is the first round of fundraising and  donations will be used on the following: 

• Land acquisition and needed improvements (Well and Septic installation) 

Should we exceed the needed funding the additonal funds will be used on the following: 

• Building construction and build out 

• Signage 

• Inventory 

• Permits & additional Licenses 

• Additional start up needs as they arise

 As a thank you for believing in this crazy dream we offer the following sponsorship levels: Please note all items offered as sponsorship perks must be picked up at the distillery once we are operational and can not be shipped.

Our goal is simple. We want to make craft American spirits in the spirit of the American craftsman. We want to do it ourselves, and do it right. Our products will never be outsourced, and we will choose quality over quantity every time. Just clean, simple booze from our Distillery to you. 

 Many thanks,  Sanford Markham & Kyle Barrow

Risks and challenges

Risk factors:
Location
To minimize the risk of failure due to a poor location we chose Hurricane Mills as our location. In Nashville there are distilleries abound and we could get lost in the shuffle. With Hurricane Mills as our business location we will have no competition in this market. Hurricane Mills is located 1 1/2 hours west of Nashville on Interstate 40 and 1 1/2 hours East of Memphis on Interstate 40. The location we chose is one block off Interstate 40 and 5 miles from historic Loretta Lynn's Ranch. We look to capitalize on all the foot traffic that frequents Loretta Lynn's Ranch for events such as Motorcross Nationals, Biker Rallies, and Numerous Concerts just to name a few.
