Get Your Shine On

Moonshine has come a long way from the bad old days. Today’s moonshine is a legal, finely distilled, and flavored product that is worthy of the term “spirits.” Additionally, such flavors as butterscotch, apple pie, peach, sweet tea, and many others leave us with more of a craft brew experience. Gatlinburg and the surrounding areas offer a variety of this “white lightning” libation, along with tours and tastings located throughout the area. Four of our faves are listed here.
