Owner description: 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 you a taste of our shine for free. Samples of our Original Unaged Corn Whiskey, White Lightnin’ and Moonshine Cherries – 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.

“Interesting Life Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

What an interesting experience, free tastings of all of their flavors. The young man pouring our samples was a lot of fun and knowledgable about the products. Who knew moonshine could be pretty tasty. It was definitely an experience just for the adults, but lots of fun and would recommend it to anyone who has never tried moonshine.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

The sampling of the moonshine was an experience, but the best part was the free music provided in Moonshine Alley. Enjoy the sound of typical mountain music while sitting in the provided rockers. Word of warning is to get there early in order to find a seat.

The distillery was alot of fun. The best part was our host that poured our samples. He was a hoot! There were many different flavors to try, and most were pretty tasty.

“Neat Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Rustic atmosphere with a neat presence. Definitely for the adults on the trip. There was plenty for the rest of the family to do while the adults taste tested and learned about the moonshine!
