McScrooge’s Announces Event Honoring Popcorn Sutton

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Feb. 9, 2016 - PRLog -- McScrooge’s Wine & Spirits will hold a bottle signing, tasting and book signing in honor of Marvin “Popcorn” Sutton, perhaps the most famous Appalachian moonshiner, from 3 to 5 p.m., Friday, Feb. 26.

McScrooge’s will be pouring free samples of Popcorn Sutton’s Tennessee White Whiskey, and John Lunn, master distiller of Sutton’s now-legal moonshine, will be on-hand to sign bottles and answer questions about the product. Also on-hand will be Tom Jester and Don Dudenbostel, author and photographer, respectively, of the book “Popcorn Sutton: The Making and Marketing of a Hillbilly Hero.” The pair will be available to autograph their book and talk about the three years they spent documenting Sutton’s life and moonshine production.

“We’re thrilled to honor Popcorn Sutton with this unique event,” Brent Barnett, McScrooge’s general manager, said. “It’s a great opportunity for people to learn more about Popcorn himself and his moonshine in its legalized form.”

The event falls just before the seven year anniversary of Sutton’s death. He killed himself on March 16, 2009, four days before he was to report to prison to serve an 18-month sentence for federal alcohol and firearm violations. For more information about this event, please visit
