Sugarlands Distilling Company officially opened to grand fanfare on March 21 amid music, moonshine and folklore. About the opening, Brent Thompson, director of strategy for Sugarlands Distilling Co., remarked, “The grand opening is truly a celebration of everyone’s sweat equity to make this distillery come to life.”
Ideally located on the Parkway in Gatlinburg, Sugarlands Distilling Co. performs the age-old craft of distilling fine Sugarlands Shine, while preserving the cultural heritage and traditions of Southern Appalachia. Situated in a barn-house constructed from the salvaged wood of four East Tennessee barns and houses, Sugarlands Distilling invites visitors to sample the Shine, go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the production, and purchase a variety of moonshine flavors, mountain merchandise and apparel.
The Sugarlands Distilling Co. guest experience is heightened by live music and Appalachian storytelling, and outdoor adventure tours can be booked to the Sugarlands, an area of Great Smoky Mountains National Park historically referred to as “moonshiners’ paradise.” Sugarlands Distilling Co. is East Tennessee-owned, with an emphasis on bettering the local community through events and charitable giving.
