This has been a whirlwind of a year, mostly because of our move from CA to TN in October. We had been talking about moving to TN for quite a while and our visit in April sort of solidified that feeling for us.
Our visit in April was full of moonshine tasting, exploring middle and east Tennessee, and eating all things fried. Our family fell in love with it all, so, naturally, I had to put together a Tennessee-inspired men’s gift guide this year.
Sugarlands Distilling Company Moonshine
Based in Gatlinburg, TN, Sugarlands Distilling Company is a craft distillery that offers a variety of tasty moonshines and other goodies.
Gatlinburg was my youngest daughter’s favorite city we visited before moving here (not because of the moonshine, of course). It’s a town packed full of family-friendly things to do and is a huge tourist destination in east Tennessee. We hiked through the mountains and took in all that the Appalachians had to offer.
I personally learned to love moonshine during our Gatlinburg trip and even managed to bring a jar home for friends and family to try.
Sugarlands has so many different moonshine options with Appalachian Apple Pie moonshine, Blockaders Blackberry moonshine, and Silver Cloud Tennessee Sour Mash being some of my favorites.
Their apple pie flavor tastes so different than any other apple pie moonshine I’ve tried and I learned it’s because they start with green apple flavor (versus red) and layer in caramel flavors instead of apple pie seasonings. It’s sweet and smells divine.
My Recipe Ideas:
Appalachian Apple Pie Moonshine + Sparkling Cranberry Citrus Water + Cinnamon
Silver Cloud TN Sour Mash Moonshine + Lime Sparkling Water + Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice (garnished with lime zest)
Blockaders Blackberry Moonshine + Lemonade

If your man is rockin’ the no hair look or just loves a great soap, get him some Baldies soaps.
Baldies is not a Tennessee company, but the ingredients in their products are great for your skin which may take a beating in this everchanging Tennessee weather.
Shower Bar 001 – Not only is this bar a body soap, it’s also designed to be used as a shampoo, as well. The refreshing ingredients like French green clay and avocado oil are great for all skin types. This bar helps keep your skin from drying out thanks to the hydration-supporting shea butter.
Shave Bar 002 – This bar was made for bald men who love to embrace their baldness. It works well as a head or face shave bar and contains skin-friendly ingredients just like the Shower Bar. And also has a lovely scent of tea tree oil and citrus.
