Said the sign that led us down the alleyway, through the market to the Moonshine Distillery. Following the crowd, we entered the whiskey store and shuffled up to the counter where we discovered the staff offering up free samples from at least eight various flavors of moonshine. All we had to do was hand them our ID.
I've never been one to drink hard liquor but the free tasting was difficult to resist. Since moving to Tennessee I've seen all sorts of references to moonshine and never quite knew what it was.... Until this day. Muuauahahahhaha ...
This place was seriously one of the best kept secrets we discovered in the town of Gatlinburg. We got a taste of all the flavors - blackberry, blueberry, white lightnin', cherry, grape, pink lemonade, apple pie, peach, and good ole regular 100 proof. Seriously.. Oh my God.
We ended up buying the Lemon Drop which wasn't one of the flavors available that day and ended up drinking the whole jar within 3 days. Planning to stock up more on our next visit. Who knew the path to alcoholism would be so refreshing! .... Just kidding of course!
