Alcoholic Beverage Group Files Applications for Three Distilleries in Sevier County

Bone McAllester Norton’s Alcoholic Beverage Law group has filed distillery applications for three clients in Sevier County, ahead of a new law governing distilleries that takes effect Monday. According to The Mountain Press, Old Forge Distillery, Dumplin Creek Distillery and Ole Smoky Distillery plan to build in East Tennessee. The new law allows construction of distilleries with on-site sales, but cities and counties have 45 days to stop the construction, saying they don’t want distilleries in their jurisdictions. Because our clients filed their applications this week, they will be allowed to sell their product on-site, even if the local governments tried to opt out of the law.

Bone McAllester Norton Announces Renovation to Downtown Office

Bone McAllester Norton has announced a renovation to its office in downtown Nashville, set to begin July 8. The expansion and “face lift” comprise four parts: a larger, more versatile multi-purpose conference room with state-of-the-art audio visual capabilities; upgrades to other conference rooms and the reception area; upgrades to attorney, paralegal and staff offices and working areas, including new carpet and paint; and adding space on the 18th floor of the building for attorneys and staff. Currently, the law firm occupies space on the 16th and 18th floors of the Nashville City Center, located at 511 Union Street.

“Our firm is now more than 10 years old, and we recognize the need to update and expand our space,” said Sam J. McAllester, vice chairman and member of Bone McAllester Norton. “This construction project will allow us to host more events for clients and the community—events we haven’t been able to take on in the past due to space constraints, and, as a law firm founded on attracting the best and the brightest attorneys and legal staff, this renovation will allow us to be able to add to our team in the future.”

The cost of the construction is estimated at $375,000. Atlanta-based ASD is the architect on the project, and Nashville-based DWC Construction will be the contractor. Construction is expected to be finished by mid-September.
