I was really surprised at how good this shine was. Some of it was even better than Ole Smokey Moonshine (Sweet Tea, Lemonade and Apple Pie), but if you want to have a fun time at a tasting, don't stop and see Brock...go on down the road to Ole Smokey and see KB. Brock was a little stiff, almost rude at first, then at the end, he was pretty much begging for a good review on Trip Advisor. It was "So rehearsed". At Ole Smokey, KB made us feel at home. We bonded with other tasters in our group and had a great time! Skip Brock and go see KB!!

This place was sooo much fun. The servers we had, Stokes and O'Damnit were awesome. The dairy products were my favorite. What a great way to try all the flavors. Will talk about our experience with all our friends and family.

OH DAMMIT is the best pourer ever! Great entertainment and moonshine. I highly recommend the $5 sampling the shine is smooth and by sampling you can find out what you like. I had a blast and so did my group.

While in Tennessee we visited many moonshine distillers and Sugarlands was by far the best both in terms of their product and exceptional service. Many thanks to Rob for going above and beyond. They are so personable. You must stop here if you are in Gatlinburg!!
