1. How We Got Our Name

Inside of Junction 35 Spirits

One of the most common questions we get is, “Why Junction 35?” If you’ve been to see us before, you know that our distillery and restaurant is themed like a train station. When creating Junction 35, we knew we wanted to bring an experience and look to the distillery industry that was unlike anything else in the Smoky Mountains. We decided to pay homage to the hard-working men of the railroad, as well as the design of some of the most famous train stations in history. During the railroad industry boom, The Junction was the name of the place where everyone gathered, met new friends, and celebrated. That’s exactly what we want everyone to be able to do at our distillery, so it seemed fitting! As far as the 35 in our name, that’s our latitude coordinate in Pigeon Forge.

2. We Have Live Music

To help us reach our goal of being a place where everyone can visit, have a good time, and enjoy good food and drinks, we decided to offer live music! On select nights, visitors can enjoy live music on our restaurant and bar side. It’s a great way to showcase the talent of local artists, as well as guarantee our guests always stay entertained! Nothing beats sipping on a handcrafted cocktail made with our signature spirits or eating some of the best slow-cooked BBQ in the Smokies while listening to live music.

3. We Have Unique Recipes
