As a recent transplant from Kentucky to the great state of Texas I was curious if there were any unlicensed distillers around.

Good luck with that. You are in the Bible Belt now. Only 2 towns in this county allow any kind of alcohol sales (Trenton and Ladonia).

Yes, I understand he is looking for "unlicensed." I'm just saying that its hard to find legal alcohol sales in the county, so good luck finding "unlicensed" ones. Probably would be easier to find some pot or meth.
Just a guess

Probably more "homebrew" meth labs then liquor stills in texoma.
But how much yo charging for your unlicensed hooch? Take it to trade days and sell it it on the down low as Fannin is full of closet drinkers... its very funny and equally sad how many in this area hide what they really are to fit in with the bible thumper crowd.

I wasn't actually trying to find any, I was just interested in peoples opinion on quality. Sorry I wasn't clear on that.

Heck, half the Bible thumper crowd don't try to hide it! They'll smoke a cigarette right outside the church doors and take a swig of juice from their car in the parking lot! And Trades Day is a good place to score any thing illegal you might be looking for. Smoke, hooch, guns; & don't forget the stolen dogs and puppymills!

I've had West Virginia 'shine, it was very good. I wouldn't touch anything brewed in Fannin County for fear that it would be pure poison.

There is a trailer sales lot within 15 miles of Bonham. The last time I was over there picking up repair parts I was able to pick up a jar of shine I understand came from down around Mt Pleasant. It was really sweet but lacked that vanilla undertone and color that comes from the oak. My guess is that it was jugged up quickly and not allowed to sit in a barrel for a month or so. Since we have a little cold snap I believe I'll go over get another jar today or tomorrow. As to the quality, I'll have to say I've had better but not by much. I really don't think anyone in Fannin county has the guts and the smarts to make real shine...

Hey transplant from KY, What part of the great commonwealth are you from? Just moved here myself, originally from Louisville, but just left the fort campbell area.

I bet the shine came from the Sugar Hill area a few miles north of Mt Plesant or from between Sugar Hill and Talco. That is some wild country over there.
