The Tennessee Whiskey Trail is unleashing the fun. Tails on the Trail, a new passport program, launched in April as a way to shine a spotlight on 22 pet-welcoming distilleries on the trail. Of those, 10 distilleries are located in the Middle Tennessee region — but the trail is throwing you a bone.

If you head to the Sip of History event at Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage on Saturday, April 6, you can kick off the program early. Over 20 Tennessee distilleries will be in attendance for whiskey tastings, beer and wine samplings, dog-friendly activities, live music, and more.

Guests and pets who complete 12 or more stops on the trail will receive a pup prize: A branded bandana and a squeaky tennis ball.
