Pure Heart ~ A Spirited Tale of Grace, Grit & Whiskey by Troy Ball ~ Book signing & whiskey tasting to follow

PURE HEART is a powerful story of how a strong woman used grit and determination to launch a thriving business, and what a mother will do to help her children. Troy Ball shares her remarkable true story of how a pearl-wearing Southern woman and devoted mother moved to Asheville, North Carolina to save her family and become the country's foremost legal distiller of traditional Appalachian moonshine. Troy & Sons has been sponsoring the Boiler Room Bar for several years and has helped us raise thousands of dollars for charity through our tip jar donations.  We invite you to celebrate the release of her new book "Pure Heart" and join us for a book signing and whiskey tasting to kick off Spring Market!
