The Black Tie Classic Car Rally — episode one
Recently a group of performance car enthusiasts made their way to the starting point at Fat Clemenzas in Miramar Beach Florida to take a trip to the Red Bay Grocery in Bruce to pick up a bottle of Peaden Brothers Moonshine. The first car to arrive at Defuniak Springs and find the Mayor, Bob Campbell, got the key to the city. This is their story
The Peaden Brothers Distillery is a true, family operated, micro distillery. Everyone participates in some facet of the business. Also, the work from the cooking the grain to the distillation of the cool, smooth whiskey is produced by hand. This way the utmost quality and craftsmanship is always insured.
The distillery is located about 100 yards from the main courthouse. The building is a newly renovated 1945 Fox Theater. Upon your visit, you can enjoy sampling fine whiskeys in the comfort of a handmade barrel shaped tasting room. There you can view photos from Prohibition and later, showing old moonshiners and their stills. Also, see photos of some of the revenue officers that shut them down. The Peaden family is carrying on a tradition that has been part of the history of Okaloosa County by making fine, Southern whiskey. So come on by and visit the family. They will love to talk to you about the history of the area and the whiskey that came from the country.
