Popcorn Sutton (American Moonshiner)- This is the Last Dam Run of Likker I'll Ever Make(Documentary)
Marvin "Popcorn" Sutton (October 5, 1946 – March 16, 2009) was an American Appalachian moonshiner and bootlegger. Born in Maggie Valley, North Carolina,he grew up, lived, and died in the rural areas around Maggie Valley and nearby Cocke County, Tennessee. Sutton had a long career making moonshine and bootlegging. Sutton said he considered moonshine production a legitimate part of his heritage, as he was a Scots-Irish American and descended from a long line of moonshiners.
In the 1960s or 1970s, Sutton was given the nickname of "Popcorn" after
his frustrated attack on a bar's faulty popcorn vending machine with a pool cue. Sutton committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning in March 2009, aged 62, rather than report to federal prison after being convicted of offenses related to moonshining and illegal firearm possession. Since his death, a new company and associated whiskey brand have been named after him.
