Distilleries

From interesting flavored rums to our world-famous sippin’ whiskeys, our distilleries are creating serious flavors to sample across the state.

Tennessees distilleries are as much a part of our rich history as natural beauty, great music and can-do attitude, with distilleries dating back to the 1800s. Since then, new distilleries have been popping up all over the state.

Tennessee is internationally famous for sippin whiskeys from Jack Daniel and George Dickel. Did you know we have a well-known rum distillery as well? Take a tour of Prichards Distillery in Kelso, where fine and flavored rums are made. New to Nashville, Corsair Distillery is winning world acclaim for its handmade small batches with unique flavors. Named Whisky Advocate’s 2013 Artisan Whisky of the Year and Craft Distiller of the Year, Corsair has a tasting room and store in Marathon Village. 

Moonshine has long been part of Tennessee history, made famous in story, song and film. Be sure to visit Tenneesee’s first legal moonshine distillery, Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery in Gatlinburg, as well as newcomer Sugarlands Distilling Company. The Kaufman brothers’ Short Mountain Distillery honors a long tradition in Cannon County, where there were once 18 legal distilleries. During Prohibition, moonshiners continued to cook product with water from the cave spring on the Short Mountain farm, supplying most of the liquor for Al Capone’s speakeasies throughout the Northeast.
