When Chris and Shawn Prillaman asked me to come up with a special blend for their Franklin County distillery, Twin Creeks Distillery, I knew that I needed to embrace the Moonshine history of the area known as “The Moonshine Capital of the World”. There is a drink that some of the locals like that involves coffee, Coffee Lace. Chris’s Grandma, Irene, has become one our biggest fans of Rocsato Coffee Roasters and her favorite moonshine drink is the Coffee Lace. So, in honor of her and many of the locals, I came up with a special blend, with two South American beans roasted medium dark, and called it Shooting Creek Lace. Shooting Creek is the name of a local road just 2 miles from St. John’s in the Mountains and is known to locals the Moonshine road. I travel this road at least twice a week to make deliveries. All of my bespoke blends are only available at the business in whom I have developed the blend. So if you want to try Shooting Creek Lace, be sure to stop by the Twin Creeks Distillery tasting room in Rocky Mount, Virginia!
