Troy Ball is a woman who exemplifies grace and grit, but it wasn’t until after she and her husband moved to Asheville, North Carolina, and raised their children that she got into whiskey – in a big way. She is the founder and principal owner of Asheville Distilling Company that makes Troy and Sons Platinum whiskey, Troy and Sons Oak Reserve, and Blonde Whiskey. “Ball’s Southern charm shines in her memoir as she shares her family’s successes and failures. She never asks for sympathy for the choices they made that led to their financial demise and ultimate perseverance. The histories of Asheville and distilling are woven throughout and add depth to her memoir.” – Publishers Weekly. “The first woman ever licensed to distill hard liquor in North Carolina uncorks an emotionally charged memoir about traversing family heartache to become the “moonshine mama” of the South. . . A heart-stirring life story.” Kirkus Reviews
