Bone McAllester Norton’s Alcoholic Beverage Law group has filed distillery applications for three clients in Sevier County, ahead of a new law governing distilleries that takes effect Monday. According to The Mountain Press, Old Forge Distillery, Dumplin Creek Distillery and Ole Smoky Distillery plan to build in East Tennessee. The new law allows construction of distilleries with on-site sales, but cities and counties have 45 days to stop the construction, saying they don’t want distilleries in their jurisdictions. Because our clients filed their applications this week, they will be allowed to sell their product on-site, even if the local governments tried to opt out of the law.
