The Rebirth of Cherry Bounce Whiskey

For the first time in 130 years, The Original Cherry Bounce Whiskey and Moonshine will be reborn since its last appearance on Cherry Mountain in Rutherford County North Carolina. Saturday, August
15th South Mountain Distilling Company in Rutherford College N.C., will make available the famed and most sought after premium Whiskey and Moonshine since the 1890s. Made with aged Corn Whiskey, real Honey, Black Cherries and aged for 2 years, a limited batch of only 500 bottles in
existance of the aged Whiskey will be made available for sale at this time. A collaboration of two legendary moonshine families, the Smiths and Owens from the Bostic and Golden Valley area prove that generations of moonshining represents the history and legacy of a artform. South Mountain
Distilling owner Don Smith and Cherry Bounce partner Lucas Owens are the first to have legalized their generational brews in over 155 years. Smith says “We wanted to bring this coveted beverage
back to life in North Carolina. Sharing this legendary recipe from the past to the present we look
forward to sharing our family history with the public.”
The Cherry Bounce Whiskey and Moonshine was created by the infamous Amos Owens of Cherry
Mountain. This highly desired whiskey was a festival favorite hosted by Amos many years ago. With
the family’s blessing and after seeing many versions from Maine to England of this North Carolina
product, South Mountain Distilling has revived this spirit with a strict eye to detail and quality that
only South Mountain can bring.
