About Grandaddy Mimms Moonshine Mule Kickin' 140
The Story of Grandaddy Mimm's Moonshine starts with Jack "Mimm" McClure, a moonshiner and philanthropist who was known far and wide for his charitable spirit and bootlegging escapades. He started distilling in the 1930s. "Jack McClure was the John Wayne of our section. A bear like man who weighed about 250 pounds, he wore a Stetson hat, and his shirt was always, even in winter, unbuttoned with a mat of reddish-gray hair exposed. He was loved, hated, respected, and feared, depending upon the experience one had had with him," said Gov. Zell Miller of the man.
He was given the nickname "Grandaddy Mimm" by his grandchildren, one of which being the prolific country musician Tommy Townsend of Waymore's Outlaws fame. In 2012 Townsend took it upon himself to resurrect his grandfather's moonshine using the original recipes and two stills designed by McClure and made in Georgia. The family-run operation uses locally-sourced ingredients. The lineup now consists of several expressions ranging from their flagship, the original Authentic Corn Whiskey, to Peach, Apple, Cherry, Blackberry, and a 140-proof monster, Mule Kickin' 140. Each expression comes in a homely yet old-school stylish mason jar.
Grandaddy Mimm's Mule Kickin' 140 Moonshine takes their flagship Corn Whiskey and dials it up a couple notches. It's made the same way, but features an extremely potent 140 proof. The award-winning moonshine is smooth and a perfect base for cocktails ― Grandaddy Mimm's recommends a Bloody Mary or Mountain Margarita.
