What is moonshine?
“Initially the term ‘moonshine’ was an umbrella term for illegal un-taxed alcohol as a whole. Now, it generally means some type of grain-based, usually corn, RAW liquor. Raw meaning it’s unaged - straight out of the tap, or money-piece, straight into a jar, and straight onto the shelf.” Sugarlands is made in the heart of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.
Sugarlands Distilling Company produces craft quality moonshine and whiskey. The distillery in downtown Gatlinburg, Tenn. is a popular attraction where guests are invited to taste free samples of authentic Sugarlands Shine, take behind-the-scenes tours of the production, and purchase a variety of moonshine flavors, mountain merchandise, and apparel.
