Posted: Updated:

MCMINN CO., TN (WRCB) - For the first time in years, the McMinn County Sheriff's Office has busted up a moonshine still.

Deputies found the operation in an old dairy farm at the foot of Starr Mountain.

They call it "wine-shine" or home-made brandy.

Deputies found 50-gallon barrels of muscadine and apple wine along with the still, a cooker and a "worm" for distilling.

Sheriff Joe Guy, who serves as county historian, called the discovery fascinating.

He says criminal charges will likely be filed.
