About Popcorn Sutton White Whiskey: “Tennessee Whiskey Legend, Marvin “Popcorn” Sutton was a third generation Moonshiner that lived and distilled his whiskey in Cocke County, Tennessee, but also claimed North Carolina as home. Popcorn was well known throughout the South and beyond for making the best damn ‘likker’ anyone had ever tasted. Popcorn lived life on his own terms, did and said whatever the hell he wanted and always had a trick up his sleeve.”
