Distillers are launching a 25-stop whiskey tour across Tennessee.The Tennessee Distillers Guild announced the new Tennessee Whiskey Trail on Monday.The distilleries will range from boutique-size to internationally known companies.
Visitors can get a free passport booklet online or at some distilleries and collect stamps at each distillery. Everyone who collects all 25 stamps will receive a commemorative gift.
The trail's launch includes three statewide celebrations: on Monday at the Little Brick Theatre at the Factory in Franklin; Nov. 3-4 at the Tennessee Distillers Guild's annual Grains and Grits Festival in Townsend; and in May 2018 in Memphis.
The trail can be completed at a visitor's own pace. The trail's website will offer a 10-day itinerary for enthusiasts who want to complete it in one trip.
