  • Enjoyed tasting all the flavors. Wish I could have gotten at least 3 different flavors, but this was a tight budget trip. Tip: Don't go to a moonshine tasting BEFORE breakfast. :) I'm sure that applies to anything that will go straight to your head. Other than learning that the hard way we really enjoyed this. (Thankfully I was smart enough to not taste everything that was offered & to eat quickly after we were finished.)
  • Great tasting experience with James!! Full of energy and tons of fun and he gave lots of drink mixing ideas. We had distillery tour with Connie. He was great at explaining details in the distilling process and explaining differences between their process and competitive hooch. He also helped us get back in line for moonshine trading since we had to leave in the middle for the tour. Awesome!!!!
  • Disappointed, always use to go here with my family. We'd try the new flavors of moonshine and figure out by end of day which one had the best one we like. But you have to pay 5$ per person to taste test now!! They said to many local drunks walking around. Thank goodness Pigeon Forge doesn't charge!! Go there! They say you get your 5$ back when you buy something, but 2 distillery and I buy from 1 I loose 5$! Nope free in Pigeon Forge! So they also got my 100$ business!
  • Rob was absolutely amazing. This was our first trip to Tennessee and I haven't laughed so hard in what feels like forever. It was a great mommy get away. Their location is in a wonderful spot as well so you can walk off the samples as you shop.
  • What a great experience! Wonderful selection of shine and flavors! Tadpole did an excellent job during our tasting... Much better than our tasting down the street.
