Lovell Bros Georgia Sour Mash
Homemade spirits have been a way of life for the Lovell family for some 150 years. They shut down their bootleg operation in the 1960s, but in 2012, Carlos decided to get back into the distilling business–legally, this time. He founded Ivy Mountain Distillery with his daughter Carlene with the sole purpose of producing the best sour mash whiskey on the market.
Ivy Mountain Distillery utilizes the same basic copper steam still and boiler design used by the Lovell family thru the early 1960s. The double thumper barrel wash system between the still and the condenser provides a second distillation of the spirit on a single run. The end result is a cleaner, smoother and ultimately more superior whiskey.
The key ingredient is the sweet Blue Ridge Mountain water drawn from Annandale Springs which runs through the family’s property. The sole purpose of this pure, original water source is for Lovell Bros whiskey production, from mash preparation to final product proofing. If you visit Ivy Mountain Distillery, and have an honest face, you might even get to see our springhouse. However, be advised, the journey may take place late at night and involve a blindfold.
