Arrington Vineyards is one of four locations on the Masters & Makers Trail offering holiday-related cocktails as samples this week.

Visit Franklin’s Masters & Makers Trail winds down its holiday-themed visits this week with stops at distilleries, breweries and a winery that are all located in Williamson County.

Launched in 2017 through a partnership between the Williamson County Convention & Visitors Bureau — known by its brand name, Visit Franklin — and five trail partners, the self-guided Masters & Makers Trail takes visitors to sites where they can learn about and sample whiskey, gin, wine, beer and more. 

Participating spirits makers are Arrington Vineyards, H Clark Distillery, Leiper’s Fork Distillery, Mill Creek Brewing Co. and Curio Brewing Co. 

Through Saturday, Jan. 2, four of the five sites will be offering holiday-themed cocktails:

• Seasonal Frosé at Arrington Vineyards

• Barrel Aged Gin and Hot Apple Cider at H Clark Distillery

• Holiday Cocktail at Mill Creek Brewing Co.

• Cordial Cherry Coffee Milk Stout at Curio Brewing Co.

Pick up your Masters & Makers Trail passport at any location or sign up for the free digital passport, visit and check-in (virtually with the digital passport or have your M&M passport stamped) at four out of the five stops on the trail, and earn a Masters & Makers ornament at the visitor center in downtown Franklin.

The Masters & Makers Trail traverses the scenic landscape throughout Williamson County, connecting craft distilleries, local breweries and an award-winning vineyard to highlight an exceptional tasting experience.
