    What to Expect
    As one of the first states to pass a prohibition law, Tennessee’s distilleries in the hills and hollers basically owned the market from 1838 until 1933, when the 21st Amendment to the US Constitution was finally passed and ratified. Pa risked his life to buy it and Ma snuck it in her coffee (for medicinal purposes, of course). After more than 80 years of Post-Prohibition freedom, heck, some of these counties are still dry - join us for a journey back in time and sample the finest old and new batch recipes in the nation.


    Departure at 11am from Downtown Nashville at 250 5th Ave South near Bob's Steakhouse

    Return at 5pm. The destinations on our Secret Sauce Tour are, well, secret just like many of the bootlegging operations dotting the rolling hills of rural Tennessee during our overly oppressive prohibition. It lasted about 15 years than federal prohibition. Your tour visits and tastes at three distilleries. We rotate distilleries, some favorites include:

    Nelson's Green Brier Distillery: A family run distillery reopened after being dormant for nearly 100 years. The Nelson brothers are on a mission to bring back the bustling whiskey business that was once bigger than Jack Daniel’s.

    Corsair Distillery: The most innovative distillery in town, Corsair won Whiskey Advocate’s 19th Annual Artisan Whiskey of the Year Award with their Triple Smoke. Ever tasted Quinoa Whiskey? It a thing.

    H Clark Distillery: One of Tennessee’s newest distilleries, this quaint operation 30 minutes south of Nashville is the first legal operation in Williamson County in a century.

    Prichard's Distillery: Tennessee Rum? Yep, it’s a thing. And a darn good one. Mr. Prichard makes rums, whiskies (both the Tennessee Whisky and Bourbon), shines, and liqueurs among other things. They’ve been legally distilling since 1997.

    Short Mountain: It’s rumored that this Woodbury farm’s cave spring was once used to supply Capone’s moonshine inventory.

    Nashville Craft Distillery: One of the newest kids on the block. This distillery takes a very scientific approach to their tours. It's owner and distiller is a former DNA science guy.

    Depending on the size of the group, you will either be traveling via coach bus or 15 passenger van.  Bring your spending money and ID.

    The distilleries we made it to would have been too difficult for me as a tourist to find, and they were finds! The beverages are practically bespoke. I picked up several bottles I knew I'd not be able to find anywhere else and they are fantastic. If you want to get off the

    We set up a personalized tour for a bachelorette weekend and it was fantastic. They were flexible with our schedule, picked us up from the house, and had everything set up for each of our visits. It was great to not have to worry about any of the details! The van was also large,

    An excellent tour. The guide was very knowledgable and we were taken around and shown just about every aspect of the distilling process. The visit to Lynchburg town centre whilst we were waiting for the tour was also enjoyable particularly as there was a music festival taking
