Jig & reel

Boyd’s Jig and Reel is at the heart of Scottish culture in East Tennessee. We have quickly become the place for musicians and whisky lovers alike to come together and celebrate the heritage of the Scots-Irish immigrants who settled here before us. Through our musical events and pub sessions we celebrate and preserve our regions’ musical heritage.

Our Whisky

When the pub opened in 2011, owners Randy & Jenny Boyd wanted a place they could enjoy Scottish music and whisky reminiscent of Edinburgh’s famous whisky bars. Over the last four years manager Nathan & his team have built up this outstanding collection of Scotch whisky by buying up all the malts available to them.

Boyd’s now has one of the largest collections of Scotch Whisky in the world and it is Nathans goal to represent every distillery both open and closed. We now have over 700 whiskies on our list including Scotch, Bourbon and Irish.

Dram Day: 50% Off Appetizers & Half Ounce Scotch Pours

Join us every Thursday from 4pm-10pm for the chance to sample any of our Scotch whiskies in a half ounce pour. This is a great opportunity to build your own whisky flight, or perhaps try something a little more special.

This offer is only available on Thursday evenings at the bar to over 21s only.
