How it all started…

Hancock County and especially Kiln, MS has long been a hot bed of whiskey production. Father and Son team, James and Matt Crittenden, decided it was time for them to set up their own still in Kiln, MS. Familiar with the romance of making whiskey and the heart break of being caught without a license, Matt leveraged his legal background to make legal whiskey. Paperwork was filed and the Crittendens were legal a year later. Knowing good equipment was necessary to make good whiskey the Crittendens chose equipment made in America and in fact the fermenters were specially made in Kiln. Much of the equipment installation was accomplished with the help of family and friends.

We take time to do things the right way!
