Overview

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.

A vacation in the Gatlinburg area just isn't complete without some moonshine tasting - but Old Smokey has become very commercial. The music is nice - but the rest of the experience was a let down as compared to the smaller distilleries outside town. If...More

My husband and I both did tastings in Gatlinburg and The Island. If you pay the $5 for the sampling, they give you a $5 off coupon which helps. My husband is a veteran so he got an additional percentage off. We respect businesses that...More

We enjoyed ole smoky and the tastings we did there. You pay 5 to taste and get a 5 off 5 coupon after. Would recommend as a stop if you are trying to get a taste of the many distilleries along the parkway.

It's fun to go to all the distilleries and sample their shines and hopefully they have a friendly and funny person pouring as well. What we found is that a lot of these distilleries and Ole Smokey in particular sells "moonshine" that is around 40-80...More

If you like robotic staff than you'll enjoy this attraction. The lady we tasted with was more interested in getting rid of us than impressing us with their merchandise; won't be going back, didn't really like the moonshine or whiskeys we tried.

With the live bluegrass music playing in the background, that TN moonshine tasted incredible! Out of the many potential things to do on the strip, I recommend this one at the top of the list.

Fun place to visit! We were a fairly large group (10 adults) but visited the sampling bars in smaller groups. For $5, you get a small shot glass sample of 6 different moonshines. Walk around inside and check out the bars first because all don't...More

It’s not really a tour it’s a tasting. They do them all day if you show up and one has already started another one will start within 10-15 min. It’s 5$ but you get it back via coupon. During the tasting you can try up to 9... More

It’s not really that kind of bar. It’s more like a store with a bar in the middle where you taste the moonshine. However, right outside the store is a bunch if rocking chairs in front of a stage where they play live music.
