About Sugarlands Shine Patti's Wild Mayhaw Moonshine

Sugarland’s Legend Series is in honor of legendary moonshiners like Patti Bryan, who comes from a long line of moonshiners. Growing up in rural Louisiana she was raised by her third generation moonshiner father, who took great pride in Patti’s natural moonshining abilities. Patti, who is now a mother, business owner, hunter, and angler, has a passion for moonshining that shines through her Wild Mayhaw moonshine spirit.

The inspiration behind Patti’s Wild Mayhaw moonshine is the hawthorn berry (Mayhaw being its colloquial name) a native American fruit, which grows in the Southern U.S., predominantly in Louisiana. The berry gets its name from the time of year that it’s harvested: every May. When the spring-time fruit gets plucked from the tree branch, it’s taste is tart and bitter, very similar in flavor to a cranberry. Hawthorn berries are most popularly combined with sugar, and made into sweet Mayhaw jelly. Patti’s signature wild Mayhaw shine balances the sweetness of Mayhaw jelly and the natural tartness of the native Louisiana berry. Bottled at 55 Proof.

About Sugarlands

In the mid-1800s, a handful of European settlers from Ireland and Scotland made their home in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Due to the abundance of sugar maple trees in the area, the settlers affectionately renamed it the “Sugarlands.” To this day, the area’s rich land, abundance of corn and, of course, predominance of sugar maple trees have made the Sugarlands a moonshiner’s paradise.

Opened in downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee in 2014, Sugarlands Distilling Company produces craft-quality moonshine, whiskey, and liqueurs “with one foot firmly planted in the past and the other in modern times.” Using an artisanal stone mill to grind grains like corn and rye into meal, Sugarlands Distilling Company then mixes in pure Smoky Mountain water to create the mash. From there, the liquid is transferred to the fermenter to simmer for a few days, and when the time is right, that "wash" is pumped into the copper pot still where it is heated and distilled. The alcohol vapor filters through the copper pipes and rises up through the plates of the distillation column, down through the chilling column to cool and is finally poured out of the Spirit Safe.
