Moonshiners coming to Opry Mills?

  • Smith Creek Moonshine appears ready to expand into Tennessee, including plans to operate a distillery, tasting area, and retail shop in Opry Mills mall. Nashville Metro council must approve an amendment to permit artisan distilleries there, and a federal permit and DSP# must be obtained.
  • Until recently known as Missouri Mountain, Smith Creek currently operates in Branson. Flavors include basic white lightnin', apple pie, salted caramel, cinnamon, peach, sweet tea, coffee, and chocolate silk. In addition to seeking the Opry Mills location, Smith Creek is also planning to open in Tanger Outlets of Sevierville.
  • Tours of local artisan distilleries, craft breweries and wineries are very popular with travelers to Tennessee, and the proximity to the Opry House and Opryland Hotel would seem perfect. The project has the support of Jeff Syracuse, area councilman. Artisan distilleries are currently allowed in the downtown and Wedgewood-Houston neighborhoods.
