Attractions in the Smokies

Throughout the Great Smoky Mountains Moonshine has a long and storied history. Now that distilling has been legalized in Tennessee you can visit moonshine and whiskey distilleries like Thunder Road Distillery and homemade wineries. All you do is follow the Spirits Trail of the Smokies.

Thunder Road Distillery in the SmokiesThe Spirits Trail of the Smokies is a digest-sized map and coupon book that lists ten distilleries, wineries and hard cider businesses that offer locally made spirits. Normally the companies offer Free Tastings of their products or glassware, and in the Spirits Trail map you also have discount coupons for merchandise.

There is hard cider in Sevierville, moonshine, whiskey and wine in several locations in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.
