In a deal with Southern Wine & Spirits, Tennessee-based Sugarlands Distilling Co. will begin distributing its lineup of seven Sugarlands Shine whiskies in Illinois for the first time.

The distillery’s 100-proof product offerings include the company’s signature shine – Silver Cloud – a traditional, clear moonshine with smooth, mellow hints of sweet corn that tastes just like the Prohibition-era sour mash moonshines; and Jim Tom’s Signature Unaged Rye, the “legal” version of TV personality and master moonshiner Jim Tom Hedrick

The five additional varieties of award-winning moonshine include:
Appalachian Apple Pie (smells like cooling apple pie),
Blockader’s Blackberry (smells like a mason jar filled with jammy preserves),
Butterscotch Gold (a creamy caramel and butter flavor that smells like brown sugar and kettle corn from the county fair),
Old Fashioned Lemonade (fruit flavors of ripe lemons, lemon zest and summer honeysuckle)
Southern Sweet Tea (real cane sugar blended with brewed black tea)

Illinois will mark the ninth state for distribution of Sugarlands in an arc extending from Florida to Minnesota.

The company has set its sights on extending distribution next to Texas, Colorado and California, management says. The name is derived from the sprawling forests of sugar maple trees surrounding the craft distiller’s headquarters in Gatlinburg.
