If Tennessee legislatures had been smart and ahead of the curve, the TN whiskey industry would be on a playing field with Kentucky by now. At this point, it'll never catch up.

Yes, let's take the thing that we are the most famous for the world over, and over-regulate it to the point that only a tiny group of people can actually profit off it and the citizens of TN get no return on its infamy. Better yet, make it virtually impossible for new players to enter the business.... that makes perfect sense.

I know, let's sell wine in grocery stores instead.

Its the socialist crony capitalist model.

Government granted and protected monopoly profits in exchange for campaign contributions.
Who cares about the citizens, there are governments to be bought and votes to be sold!

Capitalism is fun when you add socialism and remove the competition.... \:\(

I'd love to see a few small batch companies/distilleries in TN, making their own brand of TN Whiskey....maybe age it longer.
