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!

My brother in law and I went through the routine of tasting every drink they had, what a blast. We were there on a Friday night with a very small wait.

The Moonshine Distillery was lots of fun. It was a real first for us having never seen a Moonshine distillery before. They had a fellow outside singing Rocky Top! The tour was very interesting and fellow giving the tour was very knowledgeable. They give you a variety of samples to try after the tour! Of course we purchased a few bottles to take back to Pennsylvania.We also purchased some Moonshine Jam which was delicious. We had never tasted Moonshine so it really was fun. The gift store had all kinds of fun things and we each bought a sweatshirt that said, "Shine Responsibly" on it. A great tour! I have even ordered from their catalog since returning to Pennsylvania. You will enjoy this tour!

We come to Gatlinburg once a year and this is definitely a spot we stop every time. We never have had a bad time here. It has a great atmosphere with great people working there. This year was especially good because of the wonderful service by Cody. He was super fun and everyone standing with us thought so too. We all had a great time!

Wish there had been a real tour or explanation of the distilling process. But the tasting was fun and generous. Of course, emphasis on selling whisky and souvenirs.
