More Than Just Whiskey

At Thunder Road Distillery we strive to produce the highest quality moonshine, rum, vodka, gin and whiskey in East Tennessee. Located off of exit 407 in Kodak, Tennessee, Thunder Road Distillery is a popular destination for people travelling to Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. At Thunder Road Distillery, our whiskey is a reflection of the whiskey runner’s spirit. From Dumplin Creek flavored moonshine, to our own Thunder Road corn whiskey, rum, and rye, we make the best whiskey in these hills.

But don’t be fooled, we are far more than just whiskey. Our master distillers have created a diverse product line of some of the most popular spirits. From our classic Renegade Rum, to our more diverse Coconut Rum, we make sure that your needs are satisfied. We are also proud to carry the Dumplin Creek line of spirits. With Dumplin Creek, you get a diverse line of flavors that you won’t find anywhere else. From Salted Caramel shine, Red Haven Peach and Pumpkin Patch, all the way to Little River Lemon and Summer Strawberry Moonshine, Dumplin Creek has every flavor you can think of. Our vodka and award-winning Gin are more than worth a drop-by for a free tasting!

We may be more than whiskey, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about it! Mitchum’s Thunder Road Classic American Corn Whiskey is inspired by the Mountain Boy himself. Mitchum’s Thunder Road is a 90 proof classic American corn whiskey. To craft a spirit worthy of stardom, our master distiller, Dwight Bearden, worked directly with Jim Mitchum to create a distinct character and bold flavor worthy of the Mitchum name.

We also offer our award-winning Runner’s Rye. Worthy of a real boxcar run, Thunder Road Runner’s Rye features our 100 proof handcrafted moonshine with notes of rye and a spicy peppery finish. This exclusive blend was a medal winner in the 2015 New York International Spirits Competition.

Last, but certainly not least, is our Butcher’s 8 year old single barrel whiskey. Nobody knows better than a whiskey runner that there’s a time for speed, and a time to take things slow. Our Butcher’s Bourbon is an example of the latter. In fact, it takes 8 years to make each bottle, so slow down and sample a bourbon for the ages.

We offer free tours and tastings every day, so drop in and see us, and try one of our many amazing spirits! We know you won’t regret it.
