This moonshine was good!!!! We also went to the Ole Smoky Mountain Whiskey place, but were sad we just did not come here twice. The flavors were better and we had so much fun with Brock- he was so funny and I just wish my husband looked like him. We also got shots from the bar to taste the ones we didnt get to in the sampling and the bartender was so sweet, I wish I remembered her name too. We decided on a bottle of the blueberry and are mad we didnt get more. Just another excuse to get back out there is all!

I don't want to sound too pretentious, but I've done private tastings at some of the world's premier distilleries - and I've gotta say, this stacks up to the BEST of them.

The quality of product, the uniqueness of the product (it ain't just for regular drinkin'), the depth of perspective given during the tasting, the range of flavors that accommodate all types of spirits enthusiasts....I could go on.

But what truly sets this one distinctly memorable is the personality of this place that absolutely oozes out of each one of the employees. Lively, energetic, rambunctious, risque, personable...the list goes on. These ring leaders don't stop leading you through an experience at the tasting - we had the absolute pleasure of having Abbey as our emcee for the tasting. Hot damn, I'd pay $10 just to have what she said on tape. Pure entertainment, and a barrel full of laughs!

Then we were lucky enough to team up with Tugboat - a manager - who talked us through a lot of the history of the place, its (obvious) uniqueness among all the Moonshine Distilleries that have popped up around the area, and its take on it all. Tugboat took time out of his schedule, as he stepped away from stocking the shelves, to go beyond the tasting experience and offer the personalized care that we weren't expecting. From other flavor samples, to (delicious) moonshine cocktails, to the distilling process - he walked us through all of it, with the personal enthusiasm and charm only he could offer. This guy was top notch!

Although we were only able to have lengthy interactions with Abbey and Tugboat, you could see how the electric/eclectic vibe of Sugarlands' backbone lies in the talent of its employees. That - to me - is what separates it from the rest of the distilleries...although its moonshine is literally the best around...and yes, it's LEGIT MOONSHINE! (trust me, I'm from the hills of Appy)
