Tenn South Distillery first offered their “All Purpose Shine” to the public in 2013. Immediately popular, it showed how a high-proof spirit made from only Giles County white corn, sugar and pure water could reach the hearts of locals and visitors alike. At 100 proof, it was a pleasing nod to the traditions and heritage of Tennessee and the whole South.
Folks appreciated the authenticity of the recipe, and seemed to enjoy being taken back in time to the simpler ways with each sip. A sizeable number of visitors also started requesting an even higher proof version of our Shine, and we pondered that request as we collected the hearts from the still one evening. By morning, we had decided to create the premium version of our shine, and
“All Mighty 140” was born.
It’s the same corn, sugar and water, and just like “All Purpose”, we don’t cook the mash. We just mix it, let it ferment and distill it. Instead of cutting it down to 100 proof, we just collect the hearts from our copper still at 140 proof and bottle it.
THIS IS HOW REAL SHINE TASTES– RIGHT OFF THE STILL.
“All Mighty 140” Shine proves that even at an intense proof, and 140 proof is intense, a premium moonshine can still have a smooth-as-silk, creamy corn and butter taste that is unforgettable. One good shot and you can work all day without a shirt!
*Also, contrary to what some may believe, real moonshine itself does not cause blindness, brain damage, jake-leg or any serious medical problems when consumed in moderation.
