Meet Carlos Lovell. The 84-year-old son of a seasoned moonshiner who brought his father’s century-and-a-half-year-old recipe above ground and into your glass.

We must admit, the Lovell Bros. story is a breath of authenticity amongst a trendy new wave of Moonshiners. Carlos Lovell has been making Spirits since the ripe age of 16. He and his brother, Fred, learned the family recipe from their father over 60 years ago, and have been perfecting it (and drinking it) ever since.

Their father, Virgil Lovell, had a legendary Moonshine outfit, housing at least three main still operators. In the Lovell family White Dog was what kept food on the table. They eventually closed their bootleg operation in the 1960’s and Carlos Lovell went to work. Well over a century after this clandestine family enterprise went out of business, at the ripe age of 84, Carlos decided to get back at it (legally) and founded Ivy Mountain Distillery with his daughter Carlene, in 2012.

Lovell Bros. distills using the same basic techniques used by the Lovell family for generations. Utilizing the same basic copper steam still and boiler design, a double thumper barrel wash system, provides double distillation in a single go. Made using all natural, pure local spring water, and crafted from Hickory Cane corn, and just “a handful of barley.”

Sour mash Whiskey is essentially a Bourbon recipe, but starts the mash with leftovers from a previous batch, yielding a sweeter, deeper flavor. The Lovell’s “Georgia Sour Mash Whiskey” is Georgia Sour Mash White Whiskey, aged in ex- oak Jack Daniel’s barrels, for an unstated amount of time. Bottled at 43% ABV this aged White Lightning is a lumberyard on the nose, with some baking spice and vanilla notes.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
