In the mid-1800s, a handful of European settlers from Ireland and Scotland made their home in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Due to the abundance of sugar maple trees in the area, the settlers affectionately renamed it the “Sugarlands.” To this day, the area’s rich land, abundance of corn and, of course, predominance of sugar maple trees have made the Sugarlands a moonshiner’s paradise.
Opened in downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee in 2014, Sugarlands Distilling Company produces craft-quality moonshine, whiskey, and liqueurs “with one foot firmly planted in the past and the other in modern times.” Using an artisanal stone mill to grind grains like corn and rye into meal, Sugarlands Distilling Company then mixes in pure Smoky Mountain water to create the mash. From there, the liquid is transferred to the fermenter to simmer for a few days, and when the time is right, that "wash" is pumped into the copper pot still where it is heated and distilled. The alcohol vapor filters through the copper pipes and rises up through the plates of the distillation column, down through the chilling column to cool and is finally poured out of the Spirit Safe.
This typical aperitif has its origins in 13th century Italy where it was used for medicinal purposes. The liqueur is produced worldwide and can have all sorts of flavor profiles, from fruit, spices, nuts, and even cream, and has a low proof of 15 to 30% ABV.
Liqueur can be enjoyed in many different fashions, from drinking neat, in cocktails, served with coffee, or even used for cooking.
