The Grandaddy Mimm’s Distillery is located right in the heart of downtown Blairsville, Georgia.
We make all our moonshine, vodka, and spirits on-site, and our team loves to give anyone stopping in a tour of our distinctive way of doing things.
If you have a favorite drink, we’ve got all the right stuff to make it how you like while you sit back, take it easy, and taste the difference.
North Georgia was covered in bootleggers, but one of the most famous mountain moonshiners
was Jack “Mimm” McClure. Mimm made the best moonshine around. Our distillery is founded by
Jack McClure’s great-grandson, Tommy Townsend, who stumbled on his legendary perfected recipe.
Grandaddy Mimm’s uses the same ole moonshine recipe that dates back to the Great Depression,
and today we distill in the same hills where Jack made it…we just pay a few extra taxes.
Songwriter. Family Man. World-Class Distiller.
Tommy’s career didn’t begin as a moonshine distiller, but as a musician who played with Waylon Jennings and toured with the Waylon Outlaws. He is still writing new music today and is never too far away from his guitar. He’s toured with Brad Paisley, Montgomery Gentry, Ray Charles, ACDC, but finds the greatest joy in being with the people he grew up with back home in Blairsville, Georgia.
Today you’ll often find Tommy in his favorite corner booth at the distillery. Tommy is the founder and great-grandson of Jack “Mimm” McClure who inherited the renowned recipe.
Country music and moonshine have a good way of mixing, and we feel it’s always best to enjoy them together.
