Sugarlands Distilling Company has unveiled Hazelnut Rum as the newest addition to its spirits line. The East Tennessee distillery partnered with distilling legends Mark Ramsey and Digger Manes from the hit series Moonshiners to develop the spirit.
Hazelnut Rum sports aromas of toasted hazelnut and brown sugar. The full-bodied spirit blends flavors of vanilla, cinnamon and honey. At 80 proof, it finishes with a sweet, oaky kick.
Ramsey and Manes created Hazelnut Rum while filming for the Discovery Channel program. The duo combined real hazelnuts and rum in their backwoods still to create a one-of-a-kind flavored spirit.

Bootleggers Distillery, in the heart of eastern Tennessee moonshine country, is quite likely the smallest legally operating distilleries in the U.S. It’s also one of the newest, having opened earlier this year. In addition to a white dog whiskey, Bootleggers makes a Charred version, aged for several months with wood. The distillery also produces a number of fruit-infused moonshines, as well as a Hot Toddie, all packed, of course, in mason jars.
