Enjoy breakfast at the hotel, then depart for your full day Tennessee Whiskey experience. As the first state to pass a Prohibition law, Tennessee’s distilleries in the hills and hollers basically owned the market from 1838 until 1933, when the 21st Amendment to the US Constitution was finally passed and ratified. After more than 80 years of Post-Prohibition freedom, join us for a journey back in time - heck, some of these counties are still dry - and sample the finest old and new batch recipes in the nation. Visit three distilleries with tastings. Return to your hotel with the remainder of your day at leisure.
