From H Clark Distillery to Company Distilling
Every story has chapters. The story of H Clark Distillery started with a challenge to go do something that few Tennesseans had ever done, which was to start a distillery. We wouldn’t trade those first chapters for anything.
In 2009, Tennessee was home to only three distilleries. In a state famous for its whiskey, that number seems like an injustice. One of our founders, Heath Clark, felt the same way and took it upon himself to do something about it. He wrote and championed Senate Bill 1955 – the law that changed the legislation keeping the cork on Tennessee’s creativity. Now, craft spirits can flow freely in our state. And to that, we raise a glass.
In August of 2014, H Clark Distillery became the first legal distillery in Williamson County in over 100 years. H Clark Distillery officially became Company Distilling in 2020. The next chapter is equally as exciting as Heath Clark and his team in Thompson’s Station join forces with other ambitious Tennesseans to do something else unprecedented. Joining Clark in the venture are Jeff Arnett, former Jack Daniels Master Distiller, and Kris Tatum, former President of the Tennessee Distillers Guild and co-owner of Old Forge Distillery.
The grand opening activities that will take place August 25 – 27 mark Company Distilling’s official expansion into Middle Tennessee. The celebration will kick off with a ribbon-cutting event on Thursday, August 25, followed by live music, tours, and tastings throughout the weekend.

Located in the charming and picturesque town of Thompson’s Station, we craft our spirits in the same building local farmers used to house grains before loading them on the railroad for sale generations ago.
