JONESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Hills Distillery is on course to begin selling craft spirits by the fall as the owners are finishing interior renovations to the Salt House.

Stephen Callahan, the Jonesboro distillery’s principal owner, says workers will begin installing sidewalks in mid-July, about the time the tanks and equipment arrive for the moonshine and apple brandy production.

Callahan told The Johnson City Press (http://bit.ly/1lYemMU ) that the owners wanted to keep the original feel of the place, with bare bricks and original plaster and hardwood floors.

The facility will have a first-floor tasting area, and a refurbished rope-driven elevator for lifting oaken barrels of alcohol to the second floor for aging.

For the product line, Callahan said he’ll start with a number of flavors of corn whiskey, but he hopes the distillery will be known for its apple brandy.
