    1st time visit & will definitely go back. Best $5 I spent in a long time. Was able to taste 12 different shines & received $5 voucher off a purchase. Oh Dammit was our server & he was great! Funny, quick on his feet & very entertaining. Well worth the 5 bucks & your time, we walked out with 3 shines, fun memories & a slight buzz. Thanx Oh Dammit, we had a blast!

    Went there for my first time, (second time ever doing a moonshine tasting) and the bartender putting on the show went by the name of O'Damnit. Whether scripted or not, he was funny yet still an air of humorous charm and respect, and quick on his feet in response to any jokes or questions alike. Overall a great place with some great shine. I highly recommend any whisky/moonshine lovers to visit this place.

    This was my first time at the Sugarlands. Tornado was an amazing bartender who came up with funny stories behind the shines he served. He also taught us the tasting techniques and now I know how to get the caramel after taste when I drink the Appalachian apple pie, my favourite one of all. Also, butter pecan and orange cream liqueur are worth a try.

    This moonshine blows the other place out of the water. Not even in the same category. Thomas was our bar tender and kept everyone entertained. He'll fill your shot to the top. $5 and you leave with a buzz.

    Such a cool experience. You can taste for $5 and then receive $5 off a purchase. Good luck trying not to buy anything!
