Hillis and McGee are two family names that go back several generations in the state of Tennessee. All throughout the Appalachian region there are many cultures and traditions passed down through the families. One of those traditions happens to be moonshine. The aptitude for distilling spirits from corn is one of the most historical and fascinating characteristics of the south. We here at Hillis & McGee would like to share this tradition with you.
