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.

I live in Knoxville, but yesterday was my first visit to the distillery. They let you sample every kind of moonshine that they have. I think there was 8-10 different kinds. They have moonshine that is only availiable at the store and not anywhere else such as pink lemonade. They have some very nice tasting drinks that I didn't even know that they made. Everyone is talking about getting buzzed and so forth, I think they are being a little over exaggertive. Go visit try them out and and see what flavors you like. The 100 proof moonshines are definitely a good cough syrup, cleans everything out.

Be aware, if your not a drinker and go and sample this moonshine be careful, you will get drunk. Really nice people here, they are funny and don't pressure you to buy, but rather show you what you can get. I am not a drinker and I left with my own jar of moonshine. Try the applepie, it is great.

We went in February and the crowds were low. We had a great sample fellow named Gary that answered all our questions and even told us some about the area, there weren't many people so he didn't have many to serve. The live music in the courtyard was very good and there were rocking chairs to sit in and listen, even when it was raining there are overhangs to sit under. We will return soon!

We of course went into the store and tried the free samples, but then sat outside in the rocking chairs and listened to the live band play. It was a beautiful day, it was snowing and we were cuddled, listening to some old fashioned banjo picking. It was as if we were the only two people in the whole area. Of course, we eventually got cold and went back inside to shop a little, but it was a very unique and educational experience.
