    Lazy Guy Distillery - Kennesaw GA

    After watching things get interesting in the 13th Colony rye thread I was curious about other GA distilleries. I came across the site for Lazy Guy Distillery in Kennesaw. Anybody know anything about them or tried any of their products? I don't believe I've ever noticed any of their bottles in the Atlanta area.

    Here is their lineup:

    Kennesaw Lightning - 100 Proof Corn Whiskey
    Threesome Whiskey - 80 Proof Whiskey (Corn, Wheat, and (guessing malted) Barley) aged less than 1 year in oak barrels
    Cold Heart - 120 Proof Corn Whiskey aged less than 1 month in oak barrels
    The General - 150 Proof Corn Whiskey
    Side Track Bourbon - 90 Proof, coming in Spring 2015

    just chiming in as another Atlantan, haven't seen it anywhere so they must have little to no distribution.

    150 proof corn sounds like a marketing concept.

    I haven't seen it but then again I haven't really looked for it. Don't get down to the corn whiskey/"moonshine" aisle that often. Don't see anything in that list that makes me want to start looking either I have to admit.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Me either. I've bought one bottle of Mellow Corn and one bottle of Tim Smiths moonshine for Mrs TT because she likes the TV show

    Another one: http://www.georgiadistilling.com/

    Anybody ever tried this any of their products? Again, I don't think I've ever noticed it on shelves. Curious if the Doc Holliday rye is any good and if it's actually their own distillate... Their web site seems fairly light on facts.

    Looking at their web-site, they just started distribution this month. Can't say any of the product strike my fancy, but the notion of a distillery so close definitely feels like a GBS roadtrip opportunity

    Can't put Mellow Corn in the same bucket as the legal shiners, at least they put some age into it and some quality control in the distilling. Not really my preference either, but its miles above the 30 day old for $50/bottle swill that so many little guys are pushing.
