His family was deeply rooted in the foothills of North Carolina, settling in the early 1600s. Being of Scotch Irish decent, his family knew whiskey as their trade long before he came along, supporting the family through prohibition and blossoming in the outlaw era. His maternal great grandfather served as the second highest ranking Confederate general in North Carolina. His father, a lifelong bootlegger, spent nearly twenty of his sixty-three years in prison, as their house was frequently raided by revenue agents. His family experienced the largest alcohol raid in United States history, seizing upwards of 400 gallons of moonshine from the house.
