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.

Great moonshine tasting for 5 dolla. Lane was a great moonshine distributor, your 5 dolla will go towards any purchase you make there after. very smooth taste for moonshine....not too much burn.

LANE was absolutely fabulous. Haven't laughed that hard in a long time! Very knowledgeable about products too. Ask for Lane or look for the tallest guy in the place if you go! You won't be disappointed. Loved it!

Never tried moonshine but we paid $5 to sample about 6 different flavors. A few were ok but otherwise not a fan. Personal preference. The store is nice and staff were friendly.

We dropped in for a tasting and, while some of the flavors are sweeter than what we usually go for, overall it was great. Nikki was very nice and really funny.

Overall ok experience but with the particular person who did our tasting we started after one group had and finished before they did 😕. Felt rushed. The moonshine was great though!
