Overview

Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery was the pioneer in Tennessee's push to provide LEGAL Moonshine to East Tennessee. Since Ole Smoky first opened it's doors in 2010, it has continued to grow and expand into a global leader in moonshine production while staying true to it's Smoky Mountain heritage. Ole Smoky Distillery at the Island in Pigeon Forge is our second distillery to open. The Island provides a great atmosphere in the middle of Pigeon Forge for families to come and enjoy shopping, food, entertainment, and now Moonshine. Our product is made in house and our working still is visible for anyone who likes to see moonshine being made. We offer samples of our moonshine to make sure you like it before you buy it. Some of our products we offer are our Original Moonshine as well as White Lightnin, Moonshine Cherries, Apple Pie, Blackberry, Peach, Hunch Punch, Blue Flame, and several seasonal flavors that will change often. We also offer shirts, hats, glassware, and lots of food products such as BBQ Sauces, Salsas, Jams, Jellies, Butters, and more which are made with our shine as well. We offer live bluegrass music daily on our outdoor stage. Pull up one of our rocking chairs and sit a spell with us, and then you can take home the most authentic souvenir of the Smoky Mountains, Ole Smoky Moonshine.
