About
Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery was the pioneer in Tennessee's push to provide LEGAL Moonshine to East Tennessee. Since Ole Smoky first opened it's doors in 2010, it has continued to grow and expand into a global leader in moonshine production while staying true to it's Smoky Mountain heritage. Ole Smoky Distillery at the Island in Pigeon Forge is our second distillery to open. The Island provides a great atmosphere in the middle of Pigeon Forge for families to come and enjoy shopping, food, entertainment, and now Moonshine. Our product is made in house and our working still is visible for anyone who likes to see moonshine being made. We offer samples of our moonshine to make sure you like it before you buy it. Some of our products we offer are our Original Moonshine as well as White Lightnin, Moonshine Cherries, Apple Pie, Blackberry, Peach, Hunch Punch, Blue Flame, and several seasonal flavors that will change often. We also offer shirts, hats, glassware, and lots of food products such as BBQ Sauces, Salsas, Jams, Jellies, Butters, and more which are made with our shine as well. We offer live bluegrass music daily on our outdoor stage. Pull up one of our rocking chairs and sit a spell with us, and then you can take home the most authentic souvenir of the Smoky Mountains, Ole Smoky Moonshine.

7 whiskey tastings for $5. Absolutely the best $5 we have spent in a while. We were carded prior to the tastings and Cassie kept us laughing and entertained during the tastings. We received a $5 off coupon to use towards any purchase in the store, and we bought our 4 bottles of whiskey to bring home. I would definitely recommend the tastings at Ole Smoky.

Moonshine tasting was a tasty and fun experience. Cassie led the group with some fun laid back humor that made us all laugh as we drank the samples from the still. Of course we had to buy multiple mason jars of shine and Mark hooked us up with some discounts…. Thanks to all!

For 5 dollars you can sample different moonshines at the Ole Smokey moonshine distillery at the Island in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. Serenity was great and funny as she poured our samples of various moonshine. We wound up buying 8 jars of moonshine total and several shirts after the taste test. A must see if you go to the Island anytime!

In comparison to a lot of the other distilleries/tasting rooms I’ve been to, this one leaves quite a bit to be desired. You can see the distillery section for free, but there is very little information on the process and definitely seems like an after thought to the bar. The tasting costs $5, but you immediately get a $5 coupon off a purchase back. I was ok with all of this so far, a good selection of liquor and merchandise was available, and the theming was on point. Things quickly got mediocre after I approached the bar.

The bartender informed us that he was a commissioned employee (maybe a 1099 employee) and it felt that way. All the bartenders were yelling to shoppers asking if they wanted to drink, not a big deal, but seemed a little desperate. It took time for the sampling to begin because he seemed more concerned with getting as many people to the bar as possible. Once it finally started, he did a decent job. Told some good lame jokes, and did some smooth talking. But it all seemed surface deep. I asked about the mashbill for the moonshine and he seemed completely lost and mumbled about there being “some corn” in it. We also had someone leave the group due to an unruly child and he got aggravated and kept aggressively asking where he was going and said he needed to come back and finish.

On the actual product, I didn’t end up being a fan on most of them. The proof was low and many of the flavored ones drink like syrup. The white lightning is just 100 proof vodka, with no trace of the grain flavors found in traditional moonshine. The cream based drinks were the best of the bunch, and the only ones I’d care to try again.

TL; DR - cool theme, “meh” at best booze, feels like you’re being sold a timeshare.

beautiful, clean, organized store. The entire staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Cassie was our bartender for the moonshine tasting. It's a great deal as it is, you get 7 different mini-shots in a wide variety of proofs and flavors. Then they gave us coupons that take the same amount off a purchase as you pay for the tasting ($5.) She kept the whole bar laughing with her jokes about the "redneck rainbow" and gave the experience a personal touch. Keep up the awesome work, love!! :)

Tish was our taste tasting guide. She was fabulous. To begin with she was putting up stock, but when we asked her a question about tasting something not available in Gatlinburg she made time. She stopped what she was going and came over and made a full taste testing experience for us. She asked what we wanted to taste. Asked what we had already tried in Gatlinburg so we didn't repeat. We actually just stopped in to pick up a gift on our way home but Tish made the experience so much more. And therefore there was a bigger sale. By the way, it is $5 each person to taste test, BUT you get two $5 coupons that can be used together. So we got a clearance tshirt for less than $5 by using a 10% off coupon along with our two $5 coupon. And then used our other two coupons from Gatlinburg plus a 10% off coupon in a seperate transaction. So you get your money back. I highly recommend the white chocolate strawberries and cream or the butter pecan. My husband likes the 153.

I visited Ole Smoky at the Island for the first time in March 2022. It was a wonderful experience, it was also the first time that I ever tried moonshine.
My mom and I did the 5 dollar guided tour with Terry (bearded Terry) and it was both
friendly and helpful to a couple of 'big city' gals and novel shiners!
Even Mark who helped us check out was aces with customer service and recipe recommendations. Cant wait to try the recipes in my new cookbook!

Terry, the person who helped us with our tasting was fantastic. He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and an excellent salesman. I hate being sold to. However, if you can sell me without actually making it feel like a sale (or being cringey), I really appreciate and admire that skill level. Terry had this in spades. He never once tried to get us to buy other than to give us history, provide tastings, and once at the beginninng mention what the prices were. I knew from very early on that I was going to buy from him simply because I love how well he did in our tasting. The shine is excellent, flavorful, strong, and well-balanced.

Our group (a company retreat) had a blast and most walked away with shine, courtesy of Terry.

Derek charmed us right out of our money and into a delicious jar of moonshine. We watched as he entertained and informed us about varieties of moonshine while simultaneously managing what may have been some tipsy onlookers in the background who kept throwing comments his way. I enjoyed several of the offerings for the samples, but honestly it was his performance and vibe that made everything taste that much better.

Cammie was the best damn bartender I’ve ever had! Super entertaining and very informative. Cammie was dead on with her descriptions and for a mere 5 bucks you get to try around 5 different moonshines and 1 whiskey. You are rewarded with a five dollar coupon in return for your five cash that is deducted from any purchase. Had a blast!!! Thanks Cammie and Ole Smokey Tennessee Moonshine!
