It all started generations ago at a family farm in a hollow near an old oak tree. Moonshiners and bootleggers were prevalent throughout the region. The illegal trading spread far and wide, much further than the South.

Great Grandpa Garfield, born in 1886, started moonshining on the family farm back in the early 1900’s as a way to assist in feeding his family. It has been told that the process of making moonshine has been a family tradition since the early 1800’s, being pasted down from generation to generation. 

Grandpa Odis, loved helping Great Grandpa Garfield make and sample the shine. His confidence and passion for the craft prompted him to  start making it on his own. He kept the family tradition alive, however, after quite a few close calls, the Feds finally caught him, and he was sentenced for illegally producing liquor.

“I still remember the day when Grandpa Odis was at my farm telling me what steps it took to make the very best shine possible. He told me exactly where his still was buried, as he sipped from a bottle of corn whiskey. It is still buried there. I felt called to uphold my family’s tradition, and after years of hard work and dedication, I now own a distillery following my calling” (NOLA Distillery President).
