The Smoky Mountains’ Best Kept Secret

Our Spirits are made using fresh English Mountain Spring Water — Just the way William “Doc” Collier used to. No Fads, No Gimmicks..Just the Finest Shines and Spirits Around — and if we’re being honest, that ain’t no secret after all.

Our Spirits

we take great pride in giving you some of the finest shine and spirits in the smoky mountains, made just the way William “doc” collier used to. Check out a few of our offerings below, and don’t be shy — we’re open 7 days a week offering tastings!


Dew Drop is our take on a lemon-lime soda. What started as a seasonal offering is quickly becoming a fan favorite and is here to stay all year round. Look for this 40 proof delight to become more available as we expand!


Smoky Mountain Sunrise is our take on the classic “Sex on the Beach” cocktail. One of Doc’s best sellers, this 40 proof cranberry, pineapple and orange blend is perfect on the rocks or in a mimosa.


The fresh off the bush taste of our 40 proof Blackberry will have you ready to fight a Black Bear for a bottle. One of our original flavors and still top seller, Blackberry is great on its own or mixed with a light beer as a “boiler maker”. Who knows, Granny might even want some for her next cobbler.


Banana or as we say in East Tennessee “Naner”, is a sweet candied taste that will remind you of a classic popsicle on a hot day. This 40 proof liqueur goes great in what our bartenders call a “Fat Elvis” which is one part Doc Collier Naner and one part Doc Collier Buckeye (peanut butter & chocolate).

DOC'S 125

125 is the strongest product we offer here at Doc’s at 125 proof. It is made from a corn and cane sugar mash that takes about 2 weeks to ferment. We considered it a more modern version of moonshine found up in the hollers of the Smokies. With the first sip, you will taste a light corn note and the finish will come quickly with a sweet-tasting moonshine heat. 125 also goes great with our Doc Collier Bloody Mary Mix.


This 35 proof cream liqueur is a vital ingredient to the perfect chocolate martini or as a creamer in your after-dinner coffee or hot chocolate. Our Chocolate Cream has a rich taste with a decadent fudge finish.


Root Beer Float will take you back to the local drive-in or old soda fountain shop on a warm summer evening. Characteristics of the vanilla ice cream jump through the sassafras flavors to delight your taste buds with this 40 proof taste of real-life Americana.

Our Story


Doc Collier Moonshine was established in 2014 and celebrates the history of the local Collier family. Named after grandpappy, William “Doc” Collier, who was a local moonshiner, the distillery sits on the main strip of Gatlinburg. The distillery uses the very same recipes that Doc did during Prohibition including some fresh English Mountain Spring water straight from the source! With moonshine distilleries being prevalent in Gatlinburg, Doc’s aims to set itself apart through high quality products and genuine interactions with our customers. We are Gatlinburg’s best kept secret, but it looks like the secret’s out!
