“We’re proud to bring the unique experiences of the Masters & Makers Trail to the Visitor Center in downtown Franklin,” said Visit Franklin President & CEO Ellie Westman Chin. “Guests can get a taste of what each trail stop has to offer then walk down the street to experience it paired with their meal or as part of a new cocktail. We hope that once people experience a sample of the trail at the Visitor Center, they will visit each of the locations and experience these wonderful places for themselves.”
The Masters & Makers Trail is a 70-mile trail that traverses Williamson County, linking the county’s winery, breweries, and distilleries. Launched in June of 2017, the Masters & Makers Trail has already garnered national media attention for its unique combination and variety of libations and experiences offered along the trail.
