The Story of
Grandaddy Mimm’s

Jack "Mimm" McClure (1914-1969) was a moonshiner and
philanthropist in the North Georgia Mountains. Our authentic
moonshine is crafted from his 1930 recipe, which is distilled
and bottled locally. Come in and try the best moonshine
you'll ever taste.

Meet Us at the Bar!

Guests are invited to spend about 20 minutes with a tour guide,

and the intricate details of the distillation process.

For our guests who are pressed for time, we offer a flight of tasting
right at the bar. Pick up to five flavors to try straight up!
