Owner description: Doc Collier's Moonshine Distillery comes from a heritage steeped in folklore and stories found in and around the mountains of East Tennessee. Our family has never been about fads. Great-Great Grandpa William 'Doc' Collier traveled these mountains on horseback delivering his moonshine before moonshine was even a word. This at a time when an honest man knew he could find a stiff drink in our neck of the woods. Enjoy what many fine Appalachians already know! Join us for a free taste of our newly released Straight Shine and come back again for some new flavors!

Everywhere we travel we take in at least one wine tasting. This was a very unique and fun experience with something we knew nothing about. The guide there were so knowledgeable and fun! The moonshine was awesome. Especially the peach and blueberry. The only charge is if you want to try their brandy but you get two shot glasses with that purchase. It was well worth the try. I want to say it was 2 or 3 dollars. They had alot of gift items to buy as well. Loved the place!

This is the new kid on the block and also my favorite of the moonshiners.

It's a little more out of the way, past the aquarium on the strip across from Cooters and next to the (Now relocated) Hard Rock Cafe. But it is every bit of the walk down to it! I'll admit theres a few samples I'll refuse at the big ones in the middle of the strip, especially if i don't have something to drink after them. There is absolutely no need here. They don't have a ton of different ones (yet) but they have 3 solid ones!

This is the smoothest moonshine I have ever come across. To be fair I normally (and I'm sure most people) hit these places up for the free samples, and occasionally i'll buy some. I didn't even hesitate to get a bottle to bring home from these guys. And the bonus? They offer different sizes! So you can get as little or as much as you'd like! The staff was truly the best people I've ever encountered inthe area. They were genuine were interested in having conversations with us instead of just pitching their product.

So seriously, travel down the strip a little more and check these guys out! If you're looking for alcohol they just might be my favorite in Gatlinburg!

The staff here were by far the best on our trip. We went in kinda late and we was the only couple there. We got to know the staff on a personal level and enjoyed there knowledge and confidence in there products. They were such nice staff and very easy to talk to. Can't remember names but she was from Ohio which is where we live and the man was very nice too. Will visit again for sure.
