The Battle of Franklin Trust hosted its ninth annual Bootlegger’s Bash Friday evening at historic Carnton in Franklin.
Guests enjoyed whiskey tastings from nearby Tennessee distilleries and dinner in celebration of Williamson County’s unique history of bootlegging.
The evening’s tastings included Old Smokey Moonshine, Yee Haw Brewing, George Dickel Tennessee Whiskey, Jackson Morgan Southern Cream, King’s Family Distillery, Old Glory Distillery, Prichards Distillery, Tennessee Legend, Mantra, Wheeler’s Raid Distillery, Bar Magnolia, Pennington Distillery, Gate 11 Distillery, Lost State Distilling, Franklin Wine and Spirits, Lieper’s Fork Distillery, H C Clark Distillery and Big Machine Vodka.
The bash supported the ongoing work of BOFT to preserve the Franklin battlefield.
"The ninth annual Bootlegger's Bash was a tremendous success for the Battle of Franklin Trust and the Franklin community,” said Hannah Jacobs, BOFT event and group tour coordinator. “The fundraiser allowed guests to experience Carnton in a way that can't be done on a daily basis, and the money raised will let us continue driving the mission of preservation of these historic homes and the stories they tell."
