Spirits Trail of The Smokies

Smoky Mountain Moonshine Trail

Not too many years ago in the hills of Tennessee, Moonshiners hid their stills from Federal Revenuers as they continued the 200-year-old tradition of making high-proof ’shine’ from corn mash and sugar. It was called hooch, mountain dew, white lightning and the better known name of Moonshine, all made famous in the 1958 movie “Thunder Road” starring Robert Mitchum and Gene Barry, and shot in Cocke County, Tennessee, right next door to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.


But today, there has been a revival of the drink with the passing of legislation making production of Moonshine legal in Tennessee, and distillers have been coming out of the woods ever since.

You won’t see the Moonshine runners in their souped-up cars today, but you can see some of those classic, vintage cars in Pigeon Forge during the Rod Runs and car shows in April and September. And you can check out top quality moonshine distillers, and local wine and whiskey makers located in the Tennessee Smokies, that are listed below. Grab a mason jar and go “bottoms up!”.

Visit these Distilleries & Wineries in the Smoky Mountain Area.
