    Inexpensive Tasting and a “Show”

    This distillery offers an inexpensive ($5) tasting of 13 different moonshine varieties. Your pup can hang out with you anywhere you go!

    Very dog friendly

    Went for a tasting and everyone was awesome. They allowed him to stay with us at all times and even have a water bowl for the dogs

    Wonderful Staff and Accommodating

    we couldn’t say enough about this place. They welcomed our pups inside while we did a tasting and even showed us where the water bowl was so they could get some water. Highly recommend this to anyone with pets.

    Dog friendly

    Sampled moonshine for $5, bartender was hilarious. Plus you can the $5 back as a coupon to spend at the store. So glad we found this dog friendly spot!

    Dog Friendly Inside And Out

    We brought Finnegan in to hang out with us while we tried some samples. No one seemed to mind that he sat on the floor next to us while we tried 10 samples for $5. Such fun energy at the sample tables! Definitely worth it and so happy Finnegan could join us!

    Wonderfully dog friendly

    This is a terrific place! We’re on a camping road trip with our dogs and Gatlinburg was our first stop. Traveling with dogs can make it difficult to hang out and have a drink or two. But this place didn’t just allow our dogs l, they welcomed them with open arms. Nearly all the employees stopped by and said hello to my pups, even though they were busy as heck! They even provided water and a little cup of whipped cream for my for my dogs. We only tried a few of the mixed drinks, which were fabulous but saw lots of people really enjoying the moonshine flights and taking home varieties of moonshine jars! I will definitely be back if I find myself in Gatlinburg again! My chocolate lab ate up all the attention and I enjoyed a few good drinks in a great atmosphere.

    We Loved Sugarland!

    Me my husband and our husky rosebud visited Gatlinburg for our honeymoon. We were worried that no where would let us take rose with us but Sugarland was amazing very friendly welcomed us right in it was the perfect spot for us to all get out of the heat and have some fun😀 we ended up visiting them three times while we were there. The tasting was a blast thanks to Sarah and everyone loved to give our babygirl lots of attention.

    New Favorite Distillery

    Sugarlands is super dog-friendly, and they'll even let you walk through to the back with your dog instead of making you go all the way around the building. They have a bar on their back patio, so you don't even have to go inside to get a drink. The staff was super friendly, and I just loved the vibe of the place. They had several different kinds of tables and seating outside. We got cozy in rocking chairs. They also have a stage outside - I'd love to go back and hear some live music.

    Fun time

    We brought our pup in and they very graciously invited us all in. Kids came over to pet her, Deeds-the bartender (whatever you call the guy providing the tasting) literally paused serving so he could come out and welcome our girl. Such a fun experience! Definitely worth going!

    Great Spot!

    We went here and they told us to bring our pup right on in. We decided to go to the back area and drink back there. Everyone was delighted to see our dog and we were greeted by people over and over that were happy to see our pup and wanted to pet her. Even the bartenders were admiring our pup! This is a great location to bring your pup to!

    Drinks with the pup

    Yesterday my wife and I were in Gatlinburg doing the tourist thing. We were looking for a place that would allow us to bring our dog while we had a drink. I noticed Sugarlands Distilling served mixed drinks in the back. I asked the girl up front at the counter if our dog could join us while we had a drink. She said for sure. I asked if I had to walk around to a back entrance and she said just walk through. The mixed drinks were served on a patio. Some tables were under an awning and others open. There was also an access to the patio if you didn't want to walk through the store and tasting room. The maple bacon Bloody Mary was delicious.
