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.

While we were on vacation we got to see and listen to Darrell Webb Band. Which to me was an awesome thing. I have never ever like Bluegrass Music but they sure blew me away. Now I can not stop listening to it.More

Never seen a store where FREE samples of moonshine are served all day long! Great flavors - apple pie, cinnamon, fruit punch, key lime, and many many more. What an experience...Word of caution: this moonshine is no joke...it's real and potent, but oh so good!

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.
