Jeff Arnett’s Company Distilling Opens In Tennessee

More than 300 people attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the opening of Company Distilling’s Townsend location this weekend.

“It’s great to see a project that was 15 years in the making finally come to fruition, said Bryan Daniels, President and CEO of Blount Partnership. “It has been years of perseverance to deliver this project to our community, and it’s one we feel will deliver huge dividends as we work to provide the type of destination attractions that keep our young people excited about living and creating a career here. Having Company Distilling be one of the first of its kind in Blount County, along with a world-class distiller in Jeff Arnett, makes it a headliner for our tourism industry and the beginning of an outstanding relationship as a community partner.”

After the ribbon cutting, the weekend continued with live music performances by Southerland and The Coveralls with food provided by the in-house restaurant, Amico.

“We have been dreaming of this day since announcing our name in April of 2021. The support we’ve received has exceeded our expectations, and we can’t wait to welcome visitors and locals to our home on The Peaceful Side of the Smokies,” said Kris Tatum, President / Founder, Company Distilling.

Since its founding in 2020, Company Distilling’s goal has been to create spaces where people can gather around and enjoy exceptional spirits. Formed by a group of industry leaders, including former Jack Daniels Master Distiller, Jeff Arnett, Company Distilling focuses on people, places, and communities with the goal of creating a strong culture.

Jeff Arnett, Master Distiller / Founder, commented, “This is just the beginning for Company. We’re unlike any other brand on the market currently, breaking new ground and approaching our craft in a sustainable and authentic way. You won’t want to miss where we go from here. We hope you’ll follow along and be a part of our journey.”
