About Us

Nestled in the hills of the Upper Cumberland Plateau where moonshine has been made for hundreds of years, we are continuing the tradition. We make old-fashioned moonshine using a traditional copper still with non-GMO white corn and techniques that have been used for years to produce a quality smooth product.

Carrying on a family tradition, we do everything by hand, from malting our own corn to bottling and labeling. The recipe is the same as it was when the product was manufactured illegally, so you get that taste that many have enjoyed for years. The owners Scott and Sheila Hunt invite you to come visit Roaring River Distillery and watch and learn from their son Chad Hunt, who is now an experienced Master Distiller, as he explains the process of the craft

We are located in Gainesboro, TN, right off the courthouse square in the former historic Ford dealership that dates back to the turn of the 20th century. Take a step back in time and check out our store where you can buy our alcohol and unique items. Look for us under the Texaco Star.
