Grab the Tail of the Dragon at Old Tennessee Distilling Co.
Attention bikers and motorsports enthusiasts!
Have you had a chance yet to slay the notorious Dragon? With over 11 miles of road snaking around the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, U.S. Highway 129 – fondly called The Tail of the Dragon – is a must for any thrill-seeker looking to cruise the 318+ curves and switchbacks that make up the notorious strip.
Since the roadway has no interfering crossover roads or intersections, the exciting drive attracts thousands of motorcyclists and sports car enthusiasts each year —the brave few who want to conquer the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The roadway features beautiful nature stops across the state line of Tennessee and North Carolina. And if the wild outdoors doesn’t catch your fancy, plan a break to view the machinery, as you can find numerous choppers and hogs at two popular biker hangouts on the trail. You can even see the exact dam Harrison Ford jumped in the feature film “The Fugitive.”
Still, the Tail of the Dragon is not for the faint of heart. With the desolate strip of road and sharp embankments carving through the dense forests, you can taste the real spirit of Tennessee: rock music, renegade moonshine running, and the open road.
Old Tennessee Distilling Co. Tail of the Dragon Spirits
To pay homage to what many consider one of the best motorcycling and sports-car roads, the master distillers at Old Tennessee Distilling Co. created the Tail of the Dragon Triple Sec and Tequila. Both help capture the “Grab Life by the Tail” thrills of their namesake.
Tail of the Dragon Triple Sec
Our 60-proof Triple Sec is for real lovers of whiskey and moonshine. Mix the orange-flavored liquor into your favorite iced teas or Mai Tais to taste Tennessee’s strength and resilience.
Tail of the Dragon Tequila
If the Triple Sec doesn’t warm you up after feeling all that wind in your hair, our Tequila will give you the wild and exotic throttle your engine needs. Designed for those who refuse to be controlled, experience the roaring nature of distilled agave.
Pour the Tequila, Triple Sec, and lime juice into a mug and stir. Add in ice. Top with Ginger Beer. Let the unique balance of sweet and spicy give you the strength to conquer the Dragon!
