We are a manufacturer and producer of Moonshine, Whiskey, Rum, and Bourbon (Gin is on the way!) Tall Pines Distillery has a great entertainment space with an outdoor bar called Copperhead and plentiful outdoor seating. Our covered pavilion hosts weekly live entertainment, private and public parties. Themed dinners are a winter treat here at the distillery! Our customer age range is from 21 to 99+. Tall Pines Distillery attracts folks from all over the United States, France, Brazil, and Russia to name only a few. The average purchase is over $100.00.

We attribute our success to the number of repeat purchases we have. Our liquor is all-natural and contains no artificial flavoring. We use real fruit mash and local ingredients when we can. We love having people sample our products, purchase a cocktail from the bar featuring what they have sampled, and then buy a bottle or two to take along. In addition to liquor, our bottle shop sells unique gifts, T-shirts, and Hoodies.

We are family-owned and operated. Both our sons now work full-time in the business. Josh (30) is the sales manager, handles purchasing in regards to the Copperhead bar, and is our event coordinator. Jake (22) is our master distiller and production manager. All of us work the business along with our other team members doing tastings, tours, bottle sales, and bar-tending when needed. Hailey Welch, our Daughter-in-Law will run the boutique. She has an eye for fashion and has experience in the retail market.

We are raising $75,000 at a 7.75% interest rate, paid over a 60-month term! 

"A different class of hillbilly!"


The Project

In order for Tall Pines to keep up with production needs, we need a bigger space for making mash. Floor drains will help make washing and filling mash tuns much easier. The boutique is going to be a huge and unique addition to the distillery. People will shop at the up-scale boutique and purchase the latest fashion, accessories, shoes, boots, and home decor, including cowhide flasks, rugs, and pillows. Giving people more to see and do at the distillery will make Tall Pines even more of a destination.

The boutique will be named "The Ivory Buck". The funds will be used to build the space, and will not be used to purchase merchandise. The remaining funds will be spent on the distillery addition. Purchase orders will be delivered to this space and the mash will also be made in part of the space. This will help with organization and production flow. We have outgrown our current space.

  • The Ivory Buck boutique build-out - $35,000
  • Distillery addition - $40,000

Keith and Lisa started the distillery in 2014. The bottle shop opened in 2016 with 4 flavors of moonshine. We now produce 22 liquors including Rum, Bourbon, Whiskey. Our son Jake is currently working on a Gin that will be for sale in the near future. We have one franchise in Pineville, MO, and are working on a franchise in Blairsville, GA. Six of our products are sold in Fine Wine and Spirits stores in PA. Our satellite location in Donegal, PA sells all of our flavors.


Our grain to glass moonshine includes flavors such as Apple Pie, Banana Foster, Pine Sap, and Root Beer!



Tall Pines Distillery has a lot of expansion plans! We have begun to barrel-age some of our whiskey, so a rick-house will be built on the back of the distillery. A second Timber framed pavilion for events will be built on the property and small cabins will be built throughout the pines for vendors who want to set up and sell their crafts.


Moonshine has a higher proof and a higher flavor profile, making for a truly unique product.

Your ongoing responsibilities from investing are limited. Over the life of the loan, you will receive a yearly 1099-INT, which is a simple tax document similar to what you receive for most savings accounts. *Individual payments may vary slightly based on rounding. Potential repayments include principal and interest; they do not include the one-time fee which is assessed when you make your investment. These amounts are calculated as a hybrid interest-only + amortizing loan, which means that there is a specified interest-only period followed by an amortization period. There are no prepayment penalties and Tall Pines Distillery LLC may pay down their loan early, which may impact your earnings potential. Please note: returns are not guaranteed and investors could lose some or all of their investment.

Tall Pines Distillery LLC pays as agreed. You will receive quarterly payments directly into your bank account. In the event of a default, you will be contacted by the administrative agent to manage the collections process on the investors' behalf.
