The Distillery

Nestled in the sleepy little town of Trimble in Northwest Tennessee, the Full Throttle Distillery has quickly become a true local gem. Fashioned after the old Trimble Cotton Gin that previously occupied the property for almost 100 years. Highlighting an authentic and striking all copper pot and thumper still itching to distil another small batch of Tennessee Whiskey new make spirit.

Full Throttle is an authentic “grain to glass” endeavor.  Locally grown Northwest Tennessee corn, freshly milled on site begins the process. Once ground, we mash our grains to create a beautifully deep maze colored mash, ready for fermentation.  Introduction of the yeast then ferments our “grain in” mash in temperature controlled fermenters right underneath one of visitor windows. We’ve heard it time and again from our visitors: “It smells like baking bread!” 

After several days fermenting we are ready for our first, or strip, distillation through the still, to harvest the alcohol from the fermented mash. A batch of stripped alcohol of between 60-70 proof is collected. This stripped alcohol is then distilled again in a Spirit Run, creating our final twice distilled, small batch, pot Tennessee Whiskey at 125-135 proof. Walking along the wrap-around “self tour” porch of the distillery, you can smell the processes of fermentation and distillation. Cereal, alcohol and natural fruit aromas are wafting through the wall of screened windows for you to savor. We’ll leave the windows up for you, and we’ll be sure to find a minute to chat and answer any questions you may have!
