Doc Collier Moonshine Distillery - Review

William Doc Collier and his family has a deep roots in the Appalachian region. They were enterprising businessman for generations. A large part of their identity is linked to moonshining. Come to the Doc Collier Moonshine Distillery and see the equipment they used in the good old days. Taste the finest moonshine in Tennessee as Doc used the freshest mountain water around. . Doc’s Shine Shop is setup just like an old-fashioned country Commercial Store, like the one where his daddy first sold moonshine. According to tradition they still use water directly from the source to make their shine right.

Great-Great Grandpa William ‘Doc’ Collier travelled these mountains on horseback delivering his moonshine. He was an honest man and wanted to sell his drink in his neck of the wood. William “Doc” Collier lived on English Mountain and according the legend made the best moonshine. His product was in high demand and he had to distribute his product more competently. Opening a shop was what he needed to stay in business. He sold various wares to the everyday customer and his moonshine. Presently the Collier family has taken the same care and expertise used by their patriarch. The shop is designed to look like an old rustic goods store where moonshine was sold under the table. Play a round of checkers on a table made from a whiskey barrel. The old fashioned slide ladder adds authencity or try your hand at cracking corn on an antique Sheller.

You’ll also see a pickle barrel in front of the shop. The idea behind this is to let the customer know that you are selling moonshine. What makes Doc Collier Moonshine different is the fresh water. Till date the local bottler captures water fresh from the source in Dandridge, Tennessee. The Colliers have formed a selected business with English Mountain Spring Water. This cool, pure mountain water has the perfect mineralogy and pH level.

Their collection now includes Corn Whiskey, and the Original Moonshine Recipe. They have Blackberry, Peach, Firecracker, Sweat Tea and Apple Pie Moonshine Flavours.  They also have moonshine cherries and a limited bottling of Blueberry Brandy.

Doc Collier Moonshine Distillery, Gatlinburg Reviews

  • I had a bad taste in my mouth (pun intended) from moonshine in the past. My posse and I stopped in to Doc Collier on a whim and happened upon my boy Trey, who was our spirit guide (pun intended) through every Doc Collier 'shine we could get our hands on. Trey was exceptional. He knew the way to true happiness, and my trust in him was never misplaced. We bought a bit of moonshine. I would go back again. If you go, ask for Trey.

  • Best time ever for our 30th anniversary 4/30/18. We had a great day of tasting all of the moonshine. Spent too much money. Well worth the stop. I wish I could remember the guy that helped us. He was great.

  • This is a great way to learn about moonshine. Our bartender was very friendly, funny and happy to answer any questions. It costs $5.00 per person, but you get a $5.00 coupon to use towards any purchase. Anyone who looks to be under 50, must show an ID. Great experience for my husband and I as we had not been "carded" in years!

  • Part of the Rocky top wine trail or I would not have gone to this place. Did not make for a nice experience. Very rehearsed presentation of products. Went to several other moonshine establishments with a better experience

  • They have different tastings in case you want premium stuff too. Higher quality and stronger too. One of the best things about here is that you can buy smaller bottles. They are a bit further away from the rest of the tastings but to get the real feel, you need to try it out some different flavors.
