Tyler Wood comes from a long line of Kentucky moonshiners and bootleggers. For more than three generations, his family has made liquor in the forests of Kentucky â€” even his grandmother was a moonshiner. A longtime friend of fellow Kentucky shiner, Chico, Tyler has been building his own stills and making liquor for about eight years. Before he was in the moonshine business, Tyler was a civilian contractor based
in Iraq, providing logistics support for American forces and maintaining armored convoys, as well as supplying food and ammunition.
