Stopped by here to try the whiskies. Also tried the vodka and gin. Our favorite was the Dragon Tail which is a honey habanero whisky! Sssoooo yummy! They did not have any in stock but directed us to a local liquor store that carried it and we scored a couple of bottles. Very friendly people who care about their product.

On a trip to Tennessee, I thought it'd be a great idea to find a distillery and return to New England with some of there special Bourbon or alcoholic beverage.
Coming across this place in Knoxville was awesome. These guys are just the best and I had a great time sampling their products and getting great advise from the what felt like my personal guide to small batch distilling.
I tried one of their specialty cocktails and sampled various beverages. Deciding with their Bourbon Whiskey and their Pink Gin.
Hopefully I get to return to try more of their products.

Had a day to kill in Knoxville and walked around the city, landing here. Very friendly staff (Geoff) who was welcoming, informative and even kind of entertaining 😂 The only negative I have is the one bottle we absolutely loved they were out of at the time to purchase😢 Very passionate about the product, quality whiskey and relaxing atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

Tom is amazing. Cute older gentleman who knows his stuff! Prices are fair, and their fall cocktails taste great. TRY THE DRUNKIN PUMPKIN! It was my first experience at a whiskey distillery and it was definitely a memorable one. Staff amazing, prices fair, and the liquor is good tasting.

A must stop on your Tennessee adventure!

Decided to drop in... just because... and was pleasantly surprised. It’s cute and the staff was great.

We tried a few of the tastings and ended up purchasing a couple. Like several of the other reviews, I was particularly fond of the coffee liqueur, but I also found the Dragon Tail whiskey interesting. Silver whiskey was my third choice, but it didn’t make the ride home.

It was a fun stop. Go see for yourself!!!

We visited Knox Whiskey Works on my birthday and it was a great way to start the day! My husband and friends enjoyed flights and I had a delicious cocktail. Whitney was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the products and the local area. We purchased some bottles and will definitely visit again if we're back in the area.

My third visit to Knox whiskey Works. I really do enjoy their offerings. The cinnamon whiskey is really good and my favorite is there Jen, not the pink gin. Staff was very friendly and they make a really nice cocktail.

Really enjoyable visit, enjoyed the tour and the samplings. New attraction in Knoxville. A bit off the beaten path but worth the effort. They have a selection of vodka, gin and whiskey. They also offer a coffee liquor, highly recommend. I will be back again for another sampling.

I took a bit of a walk to the Knox Whiskey works after leaving my spouse to shop in the many stores of Market Square in downtown Knoxville. The young lady at the distillery was knowledgeable and helpful and the gin and other products I sampled were very palatable. I am a bit of a gin aficionado and thought their pink gin to be very well balanced but the coffee liqueur was the truly outstanding product at this visit. If you have a bottle of Kahlua or some other sweet coffee liqueur you should really feel compelled to throw it away once you sample this fantastic and flavorful coffee based spirit with its modest level of sweetness and robust coffee flavor. Well worth the trip if you are in Knoxville.
