Have been there several times and hope to go back several more! Have never had a bad experience. Been there by myself and with my wife and/or other riding buddies. The people are always friendly and willing to help but not pushy. A few times have even run into Michael there and each time he has went out of his way to Welcome me/us. Great Sloonshine and even better now that he has added his Whiskey’s. Have been there just for the store and also to some of the events he has hosted there. Great to have these opportunities in our neck of the woods! Highly recommended!!!

What a fun stop! Michael Ballard of Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis has opened a distillery in his home town of Trimble and it's very well done.
We had the place to ourselves on a Sunday afternoon in May and got the VIP tasting! We tried a small sip of almost all the flavors and my favorites were the coffee flavor and the trademark S'loonshine. The walls are covered in old lumber and the decor is very well done. And again, we were fortunate and were able to get bottles signed by Michael for great gifts for our friends who love moonshine!
We walked by the distillery which wasn't in operation that day but we could still get a whiff of the sour mash.
Go by Miss Vickie's diner down the street and have some good country cooking (it's also owned by Michael).

I was Road tripping through northwestern Tennessee, and a local recommended that I stop at Michael Ballard‘s Full Throttle Sloonshine Distillery. It was an early afternoon during mid week, so there were only a couple of other visitors. there aren’t too many tourist attractions in that neck of the woods, so it was refreshing to have somewhere to stop and break up the long drive. They have a moonshine tasting and the woman running the store was really friendly. Not too far from Reelfoot Lake if you are visiting or camping in that area.

We were in Trimble TN and walked in expecting to taste some moonshine-sloonshine and waited for 20 minutes as we walked around and was never greeted, or offered anything. One female behind bar was talking to the only other person there. So We left. Disappointed. We travel to alot of distilleries, breweries, and tap houses looking for the unique. This was not.

We visited the Full Throttle S'loonshine on 10/10/15 while visiting the Dyersburg area for the weekend. Upon entering, it's definitely a very nice but typical tourist distillery with hewn wood decor, rows of barrels and quart jars full of moonshine lining the walls and a large central tasting area.

Unfortunately that's the only review I can honestly give because we never sampled any of the moonshine. After waiting for about fifteen minutes at the tasting bar for the young lady who appeared to be the only employee in the place to attend to us, we left.

I find it necessary to point out that when we visited, there was no one, and I mean NO ONE else in the place but my wife, my daughter and son in law and myself. There was never any acknowledgment of our presence by the young lady behind the counter. No "I'll be right with you" or "Can I help you?" Nothing.

They may have sold me a jar or two of shine. I may have dropped twenty or thirty bucks for a shirt. They may have tasty moonshine but I'll personally never know and as a result of the attitude of the lone staff person I would certainly not make an effort to return.

All in all, quite disappointing.

If you've never been to Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis, SD, then this is the next best thing. The Full Throttle Sloonshine Distillery is owned by Michael Ballard, also owner of Full Throttle Saloon and created the sleepy little town of Trimble Tennessee into a popular tourist attraction. I was heading to Memphis when I decided to stop and check out the distillery. I arrived on a Thursday afternoon and had the place to myself. Michael's cousin is the manager of the store and was very friendly and informative. She explained the history of the town and talked about the operation of the distillery. I was able to sample several different flavors of the moonshine and ended up buying the original without any flavor. The tasting room is also the gift shop and is huge with several tables and chairs inside and out to relax in. There's no one allowed inside the distillery plant itself but you can look in the windows and read about the operation along the wall. Lots of detail went into this place and it shows. It is a very nice place to visit. I had a good time, bought some good moonshine and would gladly return again.

Rose the host will take care of take of you, and Ruby Michael’s mom may even sit with you for drink. Might even get a glimpse of Michael running around. It’s not a true visit, unless Love tells you to shut the f*uck up. I need to go back and to restock up!

My hubby & I decided to take a Sunday drive. We had always wanted to check out the distillery in Trimble after watching Full Throttle. So my hubby researched it & off we went! Everything he read said it was open on Sunday. However, when we got there , the tours run Monday- Friday only. It was okay, the guy that worked there was awesome. I wish I knew his name. He works in the distillery also, so he was so informative, not to mention you can try all the moonshine. My favorite was the Margarita & Expresso!! Oh, wow! Sooo smooth. Needless to say , we purchased some goodies to bring home.

Even though this was 45 minutes from the hotel, it was really interesting. Free moonshine samples of many varieties was a good marketing tool; everyone in the group made a moonshine purchase because of it.
