“Whiskey, like a beautiful woman, demands appreciation. You gaze first, then it’s time to drink.” – Haruki Murakami

Tennessee is known the world over for our music and hospitality. And our whiskey. Tennessee has been a leader in spirits distillation throughout our nation’s history. That includes the time before, during, and after Prohibition. Our pride in craftsmanship and our spirit of independence led Tennesseans to make some of the world’s finest whiskey and some of the nation’s most sought after moonshine. And it drives us to this day. Today Tennessee distillers are crafting distilled spirits as diverse as the music born in this State. From Blues to Bluegrass and from vodka to Tennessee Whiskey, Tennessee distillers are bringing our innovative and legendary spirits to our communities and the world.

The Tennessee Whiskey Trail is made up of approximately 30 distilleries across the state. These distilleries range from small, boutique-style operations to well-known distilleries that have been making legendary Tennessee Whiskey for generations.

During our unique Evening of Whiskey, you can travel the entire Tennessee Whiskey Trail and sample wares from more than 25 distilleries. Products will be available for sampling and for purchase!

The evening also includes ongoing mixology classes provided by Old Forge Distillery.

Proceeds benefit L5 Foundation, serving the needs of area cancer patients.
