You Have To Visit These Distilleries Along The Tennessee Whiskey Trail
Big Machine Distillery
Located in Lynnville, Big Machine Distillery is making a name for itself in the vodka game, but it also produces rum, bourbon, moonshine, gin, and whiskey.
Big Machine distills its vodka 25 times and then filters it through platinum beads for an incredibly smooth finish. You can tour their facility and then enjoy food and cocktails.
Nashville Barrel Company
Started on a whim by three whiskey-loving friends in 2018, Nashville Barrel Company was producing award-winning single-barrel spirits by 2021.
If you visit the distillery you can enjoy tours, tastings, and specialty experiences like blending your own whiskey or creating a custom bottle straight from the barrel.
Nashville Craft Distillery
Specializing in small-batch spirits made from regional ingredients, Nashville Craft Distillery produces spirits you’re unlikely to experience elsewhere.
Their tasting room is open from Tuesday to Sunday and they offer a two-day, hands-on distillery workshop experience to learn the ins and outs of the business.
Old Dominick
Inspired by their great-great-grandfather, Domenico Canale, who sold whiskey in ceramic jars in 1866, the family started Old Dominick Distillery in Memphis.
Producing whiskey, bourbon, gin, and vodka, the distillery offers an onsite bar, daily tours, and a monthly Beyond the Barrel experience to fully immerse visitors in the spirits.
Junction 35
Named after the train stop where moonshiners transported their wares, Junction 35 makes everything from whiskey, rye, and bourbon to rum, gum, vodka, and tequila.
The distillery offers tours of its facilities along with a restaurant where you can fill up on spirits and classic Southern offerings like barbecue, cheese grits, and coleslaw.
