Popcorn Sutton’s Moonshine Legacy
This week, Will Cheek’s client J&M Concepts, LLC placed the first Tennessee White Whiskey, aka moonshine, in Nashville bars. Partners Jamey Grosser, a former professional Supercross motorcycle racer, and Hank Williams Jr. are partners in J&M Concepts, LLC along with Marvin “Popcorn” Sutton’s wife. After Popcorn committed suicide at age 62 rather than go to jail for selling untaxed liquor Jamie was determined to pass along Popcorn’s legacy and his moonshine methodology.
“You’ve still got to be careful, though,” Hank Williams Jr. said. “It tastes exactly the same as what Popcorn made, and it’s so smooth you sometimes don’t realize what you’re drinking. Like I’ve heard Jamey (Johnson) say, there’s at least one famous Tennessee whiskey, and now there are going to be two. This one will be in a Mason jar.”
