Our group of 8 decided to spend the day downtown Gatlinburg one day during our visit to the area. We have been to Gatlinburg numerous times but this was our first visit to Sugarlands. I loved that it was open air and there was a crowd (this weekend was the busiest I've ever seen in all of my trips) but not too bad. We did not have to wait as there was room at one of the large round tasting areas.
This was absolutely our favorite tasting in the area. I've heard of others and tasted other moonshines but this was our favorite. We were able to taste 7 different flavors and then even tried mixtures of the two. We had a blast mainly b/c of the guy behind the counter pouring the shots. He was excellent. He kept us informed and mainly entertained the entire time. We laughed so hard.
I'll be honest I really had no plan to purchase a jar but after tasting all of the flavors the quality was just top notch. So they got me and I'm so glad they did!! Our group ended up walking out the door with numerous jars (I may or may not have purchased the most lol but they were so delicious I couldn't resist). The have other merchandise we were looking for the shot glasses but they were out. This saved me money so I cannot complain.

All in all this was one of our favorite activities during our trip.

Thank Ellyanne

Great staff. Great products. Very reasonable prices compared to the other distilleries in the area. Tours every 30 minutes of the distilling operation. Free live music on the back porch. Don't miss this place! Located right next to the Sky Lift.

We went to the grand opening. Jim Tom was there. The Back Porch, the entertainment venue, is so relaxing with it's rocking chairs. The band The Underhills were great- we even bought their cd. Now for the moonshine I didn't personally try the 2 100 proofs- rye and corn, but mdh preferred the corn. In the 40 proof our favs were blackberry and butterscotch. Fun time!
