Things seem to be on the right track, shipping out whisky left and right...bottoms up guys, keep the liquor flowing.
Today it is snowing, time do some sippin' and reflectin'!
Here in the holler its the quiet beauty and cozy comfort of a deep winter's day that provides some time to kick off your boots and relax in your cozy chair next to a warm glowing fire... and possibly a Dickel in your hand.

Our little town of Normandy in Bedford County Tn, hosted a concert by Country Music Artist Jamey Johnson on October 13, 2010.
The free concert was a fundraiser for the Normandy Volunteer Fire Department.
Normandy resident and business owner Nikki Mitchell is friends with Jamey and is one of the reasons Johnson agreed to perform here.
While in town Jamey was given a few tokens of appreciation, he was given a fireman's hat and was named honorary member of the Normandy Volunteer Fire Department and was also given some of Ol' George Dickel's Finest Sippin' Whisky by the Fire Department as well as by Lou, Dickel's own tour guide.
The concert was "awesome" and a total success with an estimated 3000+ in attendance, who knew Normandy could hold so many people.
Many Thanks go out to:
The Town of Normandy
The Normandy Volunteer Fire Department
The River Cafe
And all those that made this a success!!!!!!!

From time to time the Dickel employees have a safety cookout. Each time this is done a new set of cooks are picked, on April 29, 2010, the foremans ( Brian, David and Donald) grilled some burgers and brauts, on the side they had potato salad, beans and all the fixin's. It was some really good eatin'.
I appreciate Mr. Lunn inviting me to be a part of this.

We have been seeing about 14 gobblers (most with beards that look like paint brushes) and about 40 hens on a daily basis for quiet some time now. This may be due in part that the guards keep them plenty full by tossing them corn daily.
Every morning as we are measuring, cooking, fermenting and filling or emptying barrels we can hear the rumbles in the holler as the turkey come off roost and start gobbling and strutting.
