Overview
More
Doc Collier's Moonshine Distillery comes from a heritage steeped in folklore and stories found in and around the mountains of East Tennessee. Our family has never been about fads. Great-Great Grandpa William 'Doc' Collier traveled these mountains on horseback delivering his moonshine before moonshine was even a word. This at a time when an honest man knew he could find a stiff drink in our neck of the woods. Enjoy what many fine Appalachians already know! Join us for a free taste of our newly released Straight Shine and come back again for some new flavors!

It is. Its basically a tasting room. There are no tables or chairs and you basically just do the tastings at the bar. In and out in under 30 minutes.

Couple different sizes, sometimes seasonal flavors will be on sale. I believe a standard fifth was about $25.

There is no age limit to enter the store but you do have to show ID for tastings. That is true for every store or restraurant serving alcohol in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. They are very strict about it and card everyone.
