Overview

Prichard's Distillery opened their first distillery in 1999 in the historic Kelso Tennessee schoolhouse. This is our second distillery at Fontanel, one of Nashville’s premier destinations. The new Prichard’s production facility is adjacent to the log cabin tasting center and includes a 400-gallon Alembic copper still custom-designed by Vendome Copper and Brassworks in the style of French cognac. It is the first still of its kind in Tennessee, and using many of the same quality ingredients and centuries-old techniques handed down over five generations of the Prichard’s family, will produce Tennessee Whiskey and an excellent selection of American Rum. This 186 acre property was formerly owned by Country Music Hall of Fame member Barbara Mandrell, and has developed to include tours of the former Mandrell mansion, dining, lodging, shopping and outdoor activities like ziplines, live concerts, and hiking trails. Prichard’s Distillery adds a unique touch to the Fontanel guest experience

The runs here are incredible. My wife hates rum, but really enjoyed Pritchard’s. Thank you for the great time.

No on the reservation, we just showed up and walked in. No cost unless you buy the spirits. This is not a tour, just a tasting room.
