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.

My husband and I ventured downtown to Ole Smoky during our honeymoon and were so excited to find that the store offered free samples/tastings. The bar tenders are willing to let you try anything and everything they have in front of them (assuming you are of legal age, of course). This was helpful for me especially since I'm a newbie...

This store stocks all of their varieties and offers "free" tasting (pay $5.00 for tasting and get a coupon for $5.00 off your purchase). Fun shopping while hearing the live music just outside!

Visited here twice during our stay in Gatlinburg purely for the entertainment factor ... Oh and the tasting!! The area outside the store is used for bands to perform and there are chairs laid out for you to sit and enjoy the music. The store itself is great and well laid out with plenty on offer to take advantage of... More

For good TN moonshine that has unique flavors served with personality go to Ole Smoky!! You will love the atmosphere and enjoy all the extras that are there besides moonshine. $5 gets you 13 shots of moonshine and it's so worth it...especially if you are served by Rabbit!! He showed us how drinking moonshine can be fun and exciting with... More

My wife and I stopped in here to sample some of the many flavors of liquior that they have. There are sooooo many to choose from, and we finally ended up on choosing the cookies and cream. It is not very strong, I think it was 35 proof, but it tasted excellent. I would definitely recommend them. There are 3... More
