Gatlinburg, Tenn. — Sugarlands Distilling Company announces the highly anticipated addition to its authentic moonshine offerings, Tickle’s Dynamite Cinnamon Moonshine. Tickle joins Mark Rogers and Jim Tom Hedrick as the third legend in the popular Sugarlands Shine Legends Series. Tickle’s Dynamite Cinnamon Moonshine is a smooth 70 proof cinnamon perfect for sipping or cocktails.
Steven Ray Tickle is a master of many things: carpentry, mechanics, and moonshining. From an early age in Danville, Virginia Tickle gained a wealth of old-time distilling knowledge from older relatives and experimented with recipes on his own ten-gallon still using a turkey fryer, jelly jars for double thump kegs, and a shotgun condenser. Addicted to perfecting his craft Tickle often states, “It gets in your blood. I’ll moonshine ‘til the day I die.” Tickle’s Dynamite Cinnamon Moonshine is potent proof of his legendary, wildfire spirit.
Sugarlands Distilling Company, located at 805 Parkway, Gatlinburg, will host Tickle for an exclusive Cinnamon Dynamite moonshine launch meet and greet on January 17, 2015 starting at 2:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. Tickle will meet with fans and sign autographs in the downtown Gatlinburg distillery. Customers who visit Sugarlands Distilling Company are welcome to sip Sugarlands Shine samples at the distillery’s “Sippin’ Posts,” including the brand new Legends Series Cinnamon Dynamite moonshine and Mark Rogers’ American Peach moonshine.
Tickle’s Cinnamon Dynamite is available for purchase starting January 17, 2015 in Sugarlands Distilling Company’s downtown Gatlinburg location. Retail store distribution will begin early February of 2015. Sugarlands Distilling Company currently distributes award-winning Sugarlands Shine in Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Indiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois, Minnesota, and Florida.
