Casting Call for New TV Show on Hobby Distilling

Calling All Hobby Distillers

In addition to the interesting customer emails we receive here at Clawhammer Supply, we get all kinds of crazy media inquiries. If you recall, we were recently featured in Popular Mechanics magazine. How about that, a hobbyist distillation equipment company being featured in one of the oldest and most popular magazines in the US. We thought that was about as crazy as it gets, until about a week ago...

Last week a company called Paperny Entertainment got in touch with us about a new TV show they're looking to produce. They want to create a show highlighting hobby distillers and they're looking for talent! They haven't decided who they're going to feature or where they're going to shoot, but they're on the hunt for some characters.

Do you distill at home? Are you an interesting and, or a relatable individual? If so, keep reading! Below is Paperny's announcement regarding a casting call. If you feel you fit the bill, send them an email and introduce yourself.

The Casting Call

Paperny Entertainment, the producer of hit TV series in the US and Canada, is developing a new show that seeks to dispel the myths and stereotypes surrounding American distilling culture. Unlike other distilling shows, our mission is to show that distilling can be a respectable business and pastime enjoyed by regular people.

This series will tell the real-life stories of American distillers who are passionate about their craft and joining the newly popular trend of small batch spirits--everyone from established small batch distillers to recently licensed startups to new distillers who have yet to be licensed.

We are looking for interesting, relatable individuals with a passion for making quality products, who might be interested in sharing their stories.

We understand that obtaining the proper distilling permits and licenses can be an uphill battle. As such, we promise to maintain full confidentiality for anyone interested in talking with us.

  • I make good shine out of corn and yeast, and good instruments out of trash and cigar boxes. I also have the best recipe for collard greens.

  • Kinda sketchy I think. Confidentiality don’t mean a damn thing in a small town.

  • I like the idea if they can get it off the ground. Just one more reason to learn your history. For this is what built this country. Id love to be in show like this.
