bourbon tasting dinner

Bourbon Dinner

Enjoy a full-course meal paired with specially-selected bourbon sips, while enjoying the autumnal views of the Smoky Mountains!

Our evening will begin with a specially-crafted cocktail hour and appetizers on our outdoor Willows Landing, overlooking the Smoky Mountains. Dinner will be served in the outdoor pavilion, along with a tasting of the evening’s selections of bourbon from Calumet Bourbons. Paired with an amazing dinner, and sipping on fantastic bourbon, we will also be watching the Vols on the big screen!

After dinner, we invite you to stick around and enjoy a drink in the Village Gardens, and continue the evening’s enjoyment of bourbon and banter around our Unity Fire Pit.
