  • Absolutely amazing. My friends and I had a great time touring this distillery as well as doing the moonshine tasting. Connie, our tour guide is extremely knowledgeable about the distilling process, and we loved having him as our guide. Ask any question about moonshine and he'll give you an answer right away. We LOVED all the different moonshine flavors. I was especially impressed with the number of different ones Sugarlands has produced. Try the PB&J shot!
  • Josh was a great host! At least that's what he said to put. I don't know. I had just tried ten different flavors of moonshine. I'm sure they are all hilarious but this guy was especially great. It's pretty cheap entertainment. It's $5 to sample and that will also count towards your purchase. They can be stacked as well (my wife and I were able to take $10 off our purchase). Flavors vary seasonally and there is a bar in the back with more options. Try ordering a flight for the best value.
  • Extremely fun and entertaining watching the performers do the acts here. Most all the shine tastes fairly good except for a few depending on what you like and don’t. Apple pie I think is the best ;)
  • Fun experience. You pay $5 and get 14 tastings of moonshine. Taylor was a great host... please give him a raise! Very funny lol! Wristbands give you 5$ off your in store purchase... and you can use as many as you like in one transaction. Also, depending on how much you spend, you can get money off your moonshine. Example, buy 3 get one free etc
  • Great shine and Trey was a great host. He had all of us interacting and laughing the whole time. Trey was also very knowledgeable about the different types of moonshine. Definitely will be back again.
