Popular Gatlinburg distillery, Sugarlands, has partnered with celebrity moonshiner Mark Rogers to bring fans their new Mark Rogers American Peach moonshine that will be available for sale on Dec. 20.
Mark Rogers American Peach
The newest flavor from Sugarlands Distillery is called Mark Rogers American Peach. It is the first 70-proof liquor to be produced from the Gatlinburg distillery, and it is the second in the company’s Legend Series.
According to Sugarlands Distillery in Gatlinburg, the new peach moonshine masterfully captures the natural sweet nectar flavor of sun-ripened peaches while also offering a strong bite to balance. Taking a swig of this liquor will remind you of biting into a juicy peach on a hot summer day.
The new flavor will be available to guests for sampling and purchase on December 20. Retail distribution will begin mid-January.
Please keep in mind, you must be at least 21 to sample any of the moonshine sold at Sugarlands Distillery in Gatlinburg. At HearthSide Cabin Rentals, we also encourage all of our guests planning on visiting the Gatlinburg distillery to please drink responsibly.
Who is Mark Rogers?
When it comes to moonshining, Mark Rogers is considered a legend. He is one of the stars on the hit tv show “Moonshiners” on Discovery. The show focuses on the secret world of moonshining in the Appalachian mountains. Rogers is one of the 12 cast members that the series follows.
Having started when he was just 8-years-old, Rogers has over 30 years of moonshining under his belt. He credits his uncles as the people who introduced him to the art of making moonshine.
When Rogers is not busy perfecting his craft of moonshining, he can be found exploring the great outdoors as a hunting guide. His other hobbies also include fishing and woodworking.
Rogers is the second celebrity moonshiner that Sugarlands has partnered with this year. In March, the Gatlinburg distillery joined forces with Jim Tom Hedrick to bring fans their 100-proof Jim Tom’s Unaged Rye. The unaged rye was used to celebrate the grand opening of the distillery.
Coming up, the Gatlinburg distillery plans on partnering with one of Mark Roger’s “Moonshiner” co-stars, Steve “Tickle.” Tickle’s flavor has not yet been announced.
