Ole Smoky is the first federally licensed moonshine distillery in the state of Tennessee. A visit to Ole Smoky is the true moonshine experience. As you approach the entrance, you can detect the distinct smell of our grains cooking and fermenting. You'll see authentic working moonshine stills and experience the process from beginning to end. Our distillers will take the time to visit with you and answer any questions about the history and lore of moonshining in East Tennessee.After you see, smell and hear about the process, we offer tastings of our Award winning shine! Samples of our Original Unaged Corn Whiskey, White Lightnin' and Moonshine Cherries as well as Apple Pie and Blackberry flavors - plus we offer seasonal and special flavors that aren't available in package stores. And of course, you'll be able to buy plenty of moonshine and Ole Smoky merchandise to take home with you.

I didn't like it but that's just me. They do make it right there and have a large variety of flavors. All are $25 per bottle except cherry, it's $39.

Lots of flavors to taste. Always have great employees that make the experience fun. Love the Bluegrass bands that play just outside the venue. Survivorman Les was playing on June 24th.

We visit the stores every time we come on vacation. We love it. However, the moonshine tastings used to be free. Now it's $5.

Yes you may. Gatlinburg is a family oriented town and we do our best to keep our distillery within that mindset. They are welcome to accompany you for the tasting, they just won't be able to partake.
