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 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.

Free, fun, interesting. Doesn't cost a thing! Free distillary tours. Free moonshine tasting. Really cool, but be careful! Each taste is about a half a shot!

My husband and I are not big drinkers, but we made sure to stop and get our fill of Smoky Moonshine! The jars itself are pretty pricy, but the free samples are a must for anyone who has ever wondered what moonshine tastes like. The distillery is interesting, but isn't a WOW factor. Will go back again and again.

My top priority on my birthday trip to the Smokies was to stop at Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery. I have toured the Jack Daniel's Distillery several times so I had HIGH expectations. I was a little let down that this was not a guided trip. You can walk through the alley and read details about this distillery and moonshine history. We did enjoy the tasting. Jessica was our bartender. She did a great job explaining each flavor. Prices are great compared to other locations in Gatlinburg. We bought a jar of Apple Pie, but found it a hard choice over Peach. Be sure to carry cash as their system was down when we purchased. Oh, and the bluegrass band outside was a wonderful touch!

a must do especially if you like vodka or gin. Very friendly people will give you tastings (if you are old enough - they do card) and you can try the moonshine out for yourself. It's a tad pricey all things considering but they also have cute hats, tees, crocks and delish condiments like salsas, bbq sauces, etc. We had a good time and bought quite a few items.
