Troy Ball handcrafts each batch of her potent elixirs with genetically unmodified bushels of heirloom white corn and pure water from the Blue Ridge Mountains, earning her white whiskey a silver medal from the 2011 New York International Spirits Competition for its signature smoothness. During distillery tours, guides lead up to 30 guests on a sojourn through the facility's labyrinth of gleaming copper stills. After the walkthrough, guests and Prohibition-era time-travelers aged 21 and older may choose to sample a selection of white whiskeys, which can include special, unreleased batches. Visitors also receive two engraved alder-wood bottle tags to take home, helping them to finally differentiate between whisky and turpentine hidden in whiskey bottles.

Nestled in the mountains of East Tennessee, Hillside Winery presses and ferments its catalog of Italian-style and sparkling wines on site, often using fruit sourced from local farms. A rustic tasting room puts visitors in relaxation mode, while they sip sangiovese, pinot grigio, and Asti-style spumante from complimentary tasting glasses or prepare to engage the gift shop’s stuffed bear in staring contests. Behind the scenes, guests can see the polished, stainless-steel drums that press the grapes and store the wines, and observe as each bottle is capped, not corked. Butterflies captured by nature photographer Patricia Ferguson grace Hillside’s wine labels, adding a delicate note to each wine’s flavor profile.
Nestled between Little Pigeon River and the myriad attractions of Apple Barn Village, Apple Barn Winery dispenses bottles of its handcrafted orchard wines. Within the pastoral building, tasting glasses stand sentinel on a polished wood bar as servers pour dry, semisweet, and sweet wines. Some varietals are matured in French, Hungarian, and American oak barrels with toasted interiors that create drier wines and exude a strong aroma of Paul Bunyan. The winery offers a wide variety of apple wines with flavors complicated by the inclusion of such fruits as pomegranate, raspberry, and strawberry.
