Full Throttle Saloon Distillery Making Progress

Earlier this year, we reported that Trimble entrepreneur and  reality television star Michael Ballard planned to construct a distillery in his hometown. The Dyersburg State Gazette has followed Ballard’s progress closely and recently updated on his progress.

Denbar Construction has teamed up to create a replica of an old cotton gin that once stood on Ballard’s property, which he purchased from the city last April. Ballard will produce Full Throttle Sl’oon Shine (don’t you dare say sáloon shine) at the facility and hopes to employ approximately 50 people. Ballard plans to have the distillery, a retail store and a storage facility complete by Fall of next year.

“It’s a fine-looking building and underneath the overhang is going to be a patio where people will be able to sit and relax,” said Raymond Ballard.
