Hochatown Distilling Co.
Hochatown Distilling Company was formed in 2015 in the heart of Southeastern Oklahoma with the goal of producing the finest quality spirits. The community of Hochatown has a long history of producing quality moonshines, aided by the pristine waters of the Mt. Fork River and the security of the remote bottoms and hollers of the Kiamichi Mountains.
Formed by 4 partners who all had a passion for sipping fine bourbons, with each bringing a unique skillset to the group. Tommy McDaniel is a Chemical Engineer by education and spent 20 years in technical sales. Chemist Mitchell McDaniel spent 30 years working in the food sciences and analytical chemistry. Mark McDaniel brings many years of experience in the property development and construction industries and Nathan Jewell, who is an experienced distiller and comes from long family history of moonshiners.
By Mid-2016, with their product development work completed, they began to barrel their first bourbons. The decision was made to only release bourbons they made, from mashing with finest ingredients through aging and bottling. Their straight bourbon whiskey was released in the Spring of 2019.
