TN Whiskey Trail Stops
Just outside of town lie two stops on the Tennessee Whiskey Trail and one big story of the world’s most famous whiskey. Fayetteville has two small batch distilleries, Prichard’s and Southern Pride, each with their own proprietary ingredients and distilling processes. Both offer tours and tastings of whiskey, moonshine and other premium spirits. Prichard’s, located in a historic schoolhouse employs a unique family distilling process that goes back five generations. Situated on a pastoral farm, Southern Pride Distillery crafts their whiskey entirely out of spring water and locally grown corn using the famous Lincoln County process.
Tennessee whiskey is unlike any other whiskey in the world. In fact, it has its own patented process for creating the famous spirit called the Lincoln County Process. The Lincoln County Process was created by the creators of Jack Daniels. It refers to the use of sugar maple charcoal to filter and mellow new-make whiskey before aging it in a barrel, making Tennessee whiskey unique. Without it, a whiskey cannot be called a Tennessee whiskey.
See how the legacy of a “legal” Tennessee whiskey recipe has been passed down through 5 generations of the Prichard family. Whiskey, moonshine, rum and vodka all bottled up in early American-style hand-blown glass. Free tours and tastings in the tasting room.
