What you'll do
For our Gatlinburg tour we will meet you at the beginning of Gatlinburg under a covered pavilion. After we give an informative overview and history of “Appalachia” and moonshining we will begin our tour. I will be showing you real life working stills. You will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes and see exactly how their process works. After that we will jump right into our first round of tastings!. As a guest of my tour not only is your tastings included, you will enjoy a nice discount on all purchases. We will then take a short walk to our next location (about 1/2 mile) where we will sample not only moonshine but whiskeys as well for another 13 samples! On our short little walk we will stop at several key points alongside the creek and share fun (not dry) history of the moonshinning old timers. Even during the busiest times of the year this walk is beautiful and scenic and very few people even know it’s here. Once we arrive at our next location I will take you to an exclusive backstage tour of another working distillery (based on operating schedule). What better way to enjoy your tour then with a complimentary moonshine cocktail! Enjoy! It’s on me!. Here you will also have the option to do yet ANOTHER tasting Check ALMOST 200 FIVE STAR reviews! You will have an AMAZING time. We will make sure of it!
