We trace Kentucky Mist’s roots back to Little Henry Holbrook and the days of American Prohibition, or the Dark Ages, as they should be rightly called. Distilling corn liquor and bootlegging in the Appalachian Mountains was more than a way of life for Henry and his kinfolk in those days. It was how Henry and his family survived. Henry finally got caught bootlegging his corn liquor to folks in the mountains of eastern Kentucky, and the federal government sent him away to Atlanta in 1930 for a long prison stint in the federal penitentiary. While Henry was there, he formed a good friendship with fellow bootlegger, Al Capone. As the years passed him outside of his concrete walls, Henry became determined to not let his moonshine makin’ be the end of his family’s legacy.
