Introducing… Day Swigger!

First look at Day Swigger Butter Pecan by Doc Brown Farm and Distillers

We’ve been sitting on this news for a while, but we couldn’t hold it any longer. At the beginning of May, Doc Brown Farm & Distillers will be launching a new line of spirits called… Day Swigger. These flavored bourbon liqueurs are a little treat we’ve been working on and the first one you’ll see will be a delicious butter pecan in a bijou 200ml bottle.

But let’s start with the name. Day Swigger comes from way back when we were all young rascals. Back then, Ma and Pa Brown were teetotal and when they entertained, well, let’s just say someone always used to sneak a hipflask of bourbon into the party. Some of us scallywag cousins formed a little group called the Yard Swiggers and, on the signal, we’d meet out back and share that flask. A little something to take the edge off.

We’re still fun-loving rascals, but today we’re the folks who make the bourbon. So we decided to create a line of liquors a little less serious than our Effie Jewel and Uncle Bogue bourbons – something you can enjoy as a little treat, or a reward after a long day.

Farm fresh flavors

In the bottle, we’ll bring you a blend of young whiskey that includes our Jimmy Red Corn bourbon flavored with all-natural ingredients from Georgia. First up is our Day Swigger Butter Pecan Liqueur made with extracts of Georgia-raised pecans.

A few months down the line, we hope to add a Hot Honey flavor, made with our own farm honey and southern spice. We might follow it with a sweet honey liqueur without the heat. It’s just perfect – the bees that pollinate our Jimmy Red Corn will also make the honey that goes into the Day Swigger bottle. As nature-loving Georgia farmers, we couldn’t be prouder.

Now, as we sign off, there’s just one thing we need to mention. We’ve called this line Day Swigger but that doesn’t mean we advocate daytime drinking, and we urge y’all to drink responsibly. For us Day Swigger is a little delight in a bottle – a gift for yourself or a friend. When a wink and a smile are what’s called for, us rascals down on the farm have got you covered.

Price and ABV to be confirmed…

Doc Brown Farm & Distillers featured on the Winters Media website

Today we’re a-whoopin’ and a-hollerin’ with joy thanks to the fine folks at Winters Media, publishers of the The Paper and The Weekly, two local journals right here in Coweta County, Georgia. Last week, they featured Doc Brown Farm & Distillers in the News section of their site, with an article all about how we founded the distillery and the faith, family and fortitude principles that guide us.

A special thank-you to Katie Anderson who wrote the piece, which catches our vibe perfectly in a Georgia pecan shell. (Watch this space for more about nut-inspired spirits!) We’ve included the article below, as it appears on the Winters Media website.


Faith, Family and Fortitude: Senoia’s Doc Brown Farm and Distillers

February 28, 2024

By KATIE ANDERSON, Out and About

It all started with a magazine on a beach.

Amy Brown, Paige Dockweiler, and Amy’s son Daniel Williams had just bought their Senoia farm. They were sitting on a beach at 30A, reading a Garden and Gun article about an heirloom grain, Jimmy Red Corn.

They decided to give growing the corn a try. Initially, they distilled two barrels of bourbon to share with family and friends. It was so good that they started Doc Brown Farm and Distillers in 2019. Fast forward to October 1, 2023, and their first bourbons were released: Effie Jewel and Uncle Bogue (now sold out.) They also created four flavors of bourbon creams: Butter Pecan, Salted Caramel, Coffee, and Peppermint Mocha. 

The founders all come from farming families. Brown has a background in banking and now manages the farm full-time. Dockweiler and Williams have other jobs in healthcare and aviation respectively, but cherish their time spent playing in the dirt.

The farm operates from three foundation blocks – faith, family, and fortitude. Their love of family transferred to their labels, as well. Uncle Bogue was a great, great uncle, and Effie Jewel was a great aunt. Both stood out as examples of their family’s fortitude and tenacity. Effie Jewel Bourbon is dedicated to all women in the distilling industry. “Our desire and hope is that Effie Jewel inspires women to act on their dreams and find courage to sit at tables that maybe have been off limits in the past.

“I will say that we’ve had nothing but kindness and support from men and women alike and even though we are small and just a dot on the map of the bourbon world, we are thankful for those who have helped us get this far,” said Brown.

Their land has proven to be a good match with Jimmy Red Corn. It is non-gmo, produced without chemicals of any kind. This special variety of corn is making a comeback after almost becoming extinct, and is known for its sweet, rich, buttery flavor. 

To control pests, the Doc Brown team built houses to attract bats, which help fight the ear worm and other damaging insects. They’ve also brought in bees, which made a difference in their yield and ear size. The farmers use old style methods like cover crops and rotation to take care of their soil. 

This approach has brought them full circle with Garden and Gunmagazine, by winning a 2023 Garden and Gun Made in the South Award for their Butter Pecan Bourbon Cream.

“We have subscribed to Garden and Gun now for years and the inspiration for growing the Jimmy Red Corn came from an article published in G&G, so our goal was to ‘make it into G&G’ one day.

“When it was time to enter the ‘Best of the South’ we had the amazing support of Heather Daniel, who recommended us so off we go submitting the 1st round of paperwork … a nd then we waited…and waited…then another email came in that stated we ‘made it into Best of the South’ but we had to keep our mouths closed – that was the longest month of my life sitting on a dream that had come true,” Brown stated.

“We are so grateful for everyone’s support and kindness. Our goal is always to produce products that everyone can enjoy knowing that good old fashioned farming techniques were used and that it’s made with a lot of love for this golden land we all share,” said Brown.

Stop the press, y’all! We’re proud to say that on November 30th 2023, Doc Brown Farm & Distillers received extensive coverage in The Newnan Times-Herald right here in Georgia. We’re blown away by their thorough, in-depth article.

In her feature, Shannon Poteet provides a full overview of how we got started, our cherished beliefs and what we’re doing down here on the farm with our Jimmy Red Corn.

As the piece points out, it started as a happy accident and now we’re a Georgia business on a mission. One day Daniel said, “Mom, why don’t you grow corn on y’all’s farm? We can distill it and make some family bourbon?” So we took the plunge.

Our sustainable, traditional approach to farming; seed-to-still distilling; our roots on the land; our High Heels and Cornfields motto. Shannon has captured it all in wonderfully concise prose and she’s also mentioned our recent awards.

Huge gratitude to Shannon and the editorial team down Highway 16 at The Times-Herald. It’s an honor to appear in this esteemed and long-running publication, which is also our local newspaper.

Gold medals for Bourbon Creams

Peppermint Mocha and Butter Pecan Bourbon Cream Liqueurs with gold medals

Pinch us! Is this real? Doc Brown Farm & Distillers has just won two gold medals at the ninth annual Georgia Trustees Wine & Spirits Competition.

These are the first medals we’ve won since setting up the farm and they were awarded to our Butter Pecan and Peppermint Mocha Bourbon Cream liqueurs in the Distilled and Specialty Spirits category.

We’re delighted to receive these awards – as chosen by the competition’s panel of judges, which includes trained experts in wine tasting alongside spirits specialists.

Here at Doc Brown, we take pride in farming our little corner of Georgia and we strive to use ingredients from this state and work with local businesses in everything we do. So, it’s extra special to be recognized here in our home state by a competition dedicated to Georgia’s wine, mead, cider and spirit producers.


But now that we have a laurel, we’re not going to rest on it, oh no. These medals have inspired us to carry on with our mission to make the finest farm fresh bourbon, from seed to still, using the heritage Jimmy Red Corn we grow here in Senoia, GA.

Now that our first batch of bourbons – Effie Jewel and Uncle Bogue – have been released, the Georgia Trustees Wine & Spirits Competition will be first on our list to enter next year. We can’t wait to see what the judges will think of these charred oak-aged Georgia whiskeys.

We’d like to send out a big thank you to everyone involved in running the competition and also to y’all who have supported our business since it was just the kernel of an idea waiting to be planted. God bless.

Event: Bourbon, bites and brushes

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with The Distillery of Modern Art in Atlanta, GA. Going forward, this amazingly talented organisation will be distilling our Georgia bourbons including Resurrection Red, Effie Jewel and more – watch this space.

Now, The Distillery of Modern Art sure has a story to tell. Alongside hosting gallery shows for Georgia artists, they distill a range of their own liquors served in their beautiful cocktail lounge. Combining a love of art and distilling, they can now add farming to the collaboration while we will benefit from the expertise and advice of master distiller Matt Greif.

Join us to celebrate!

On October 1st, 2023, we will celebrate our annual harvest with a gathering at The Distillery of Modern Art. To honor the many artists and craftspeople in our family, we will open two barrels of our bourbon that have been aging over the past few years – unfiltered, uncut bourbon as it should be! And, we would love to have you join us.
