Ramsey and Manes created the spirit by combining hazelnuts and rum in their backwoods still

The East Tennessee distillery partnered with Mark Ramsey and Digger Manes from the hit series to develop the spirit, which follows the release of an apple-infused rye moonshine in January 2016.

Ramsey and Manes created the spirit by combining hazelnuts and rum in their backwoods still while filming the television programme.

“Our hazelnut rum really became a labour of love, mainly because our wives became the first big fans of it,” said Manes. “Because of them, we were determined to make it better than any other homemade liquor that anyone had ever tasted.”

Hazelnut Rum offers toasted hazelnut and brown sugar on the nose, and is described as “a smooth, full bodied spirit that blends the tastes of vanilla, cinnamon and honey” and a sweet, oaky finish.

“In the words of our mentor Popcorn Sutton, ‘this is some of the finest liquors that’s ever been,'” said Ramsey. “Now it is our pleasure to share it with the rest of the world. We’re really humbled that folks are eager to try it.”

Mark & Digger’s Hazelnut Rum is bottled at 40% abv and is available in Sugarland’s downtown Gatlinburg distillery and online.
