Henry finally got caught bootlegging his corn liquor to folks in the mountains of eastern Kentucky, and the federal government sent him away to Atlanta in 1930 for a long prison stint in the federal penitentiary. While Henry was there, he formed a good friendship with fellow bootlegger, Al Capone. As the years passed him outside of his concrete walls, Henry became determined to not let his moonshine makin' be the end of his family's legacy.
A new generation of moonshiners
Henry continued to bootleg moonshine, although he spent 17 years of his life in captivity. He died in 1986, but almost seventy years after he had served his time in Atlanta, Henry's grandson wanted to take up the craft that had landed Henry behind bars for nearly two decades. Colin Fultz decided he was going to turn the Holbrook family tradition into a legal business in 2015. Using trade secrets and recipes passed down for generations, Colin opened Kentucky Mist's doors to Whitesburg and east Kentucky, as determined as his grandpaw Henry to share his family's legacy with the entire world.
