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.

Paid $5 and ended up sampling 13 different types of whiskey even though I had planned to only try a few. The bartender was very knowledge and told about each whiskey as he poured it. He was even willing to discuss his favorites and ways to mix the whiskey with other drinks. It was a fun time.

Our family stopped in here to check it out when we were shopping in the downtown area. My husband paid $5 to do a sampling of all the different moonshine flavors- there were 13- and they gave him a $5 coupon for any purchase in the store, and since we bought some jars, the tasting was basically free, so very...

The location of the one in gatlinburg ( I think there is more than one) is great- downtown gatlinburg amidst great shopping, pretty scene! When we went they were also starting up live string banjo/ guitar music outside which was amazing since it was so cold!! The bartenders that serve you moonshine are really funny. They'll take you in groups... More

Store feels cramped, lots of staff standing around talking instead of helping people. Moonshine leaves much to be desired. Some are pretty good, many can be skipped. Only 2 coupons can be combined when you do the tasting.
