MURFREESBORO, TN – March 29, 2019 – The inaugural Moonshine in the Mansion takes place 6-9 p.m. Friday, April 26 at Oaklands Mansion.
Guests will have the opportunity to explore the mansion and grounds where they will find Short Mountain Distillery’s array of “shines” and enjoy fresh, seasonally inspired pairings by Nashville Events and Catering’s Executive Chef Jonathan Austin and Laura Gossett from The Tasty Table Event Catering.
Included in the samplings will be Short Mountain Distillery’s “Prohibition Tea.” Meet the distillers and learn more about the history of moonshine in Middle Tennessee.
In 1920, prohibition shut down the relationship between farming and distilleries, but the heritage of whiskey making lived on, nowhere more so than Short Mountain, Cannon County Tennessee. During this time famous moonshiners like Cooper Melton used the cave on what is now Short Mountain Distillery’s farm to make “shine” that is said to have supplied Al Capone’s speakeasies throughout the North East.
This event supports Oaklands Mansion and its mission, which is rooted in education and preservation.
Advanced admission is $35 until 4 p.m. April 11. Gate admission is $40.
