This place has a great atmosphere! It is very laid back. You can see where they make their moonshine and they have a band that plays. The bartenders would joke around with everyone and they made the tasting enjoyable. We got to taste each kind of moonshine that they offer. The strawberry, lemon drop, and blueberry were delicious!

The place has a terrific atmosphere of friendly staff and customers. Live world class bluegrass all day. The products are superior to anyone in town. My only must visit place in Gatlinburg.

This is a nice place. Lots of free samples of moonshine. The only thing is that the moonshine we purchased seemed a little watered down from what we tasted and it froze when I put it in the freezer which proves that fact.

If you want to experience some great 'shine, STOP HERE!! The two guys at the bar that served us samples were AMAZING!! They were lively and entertaining and put on a great show while you sampled every flavor they have.... and even a few mixed concoctions they want you to try!! The whole atmosphere of the place is great... you get to learn about the making of their products, and then taste them. Not only just the moonshine/whiskey, but there are also jams, salsas, pickles, etc. to try. Everyone is polite and helpful. A lot of products to buy to remember your time there, and some great deals!! Look around the area for a 10% off merchandise coupon.
Also, a snack bar just outside, if you need a little snack to balance your alcohol intake... and there was a band playing on the side while we were there... GREAT PLACE all around!! Will definitely go back on our next trip!!!

The variety of flavors was incredible the fact you got to taste them all for Free was amazing! The flavors were so good they did not even taste like moonshine! The Sweet Tea & Apple Pie were my favorites! Definitly a MUST see and do in the Gatlinburg area! and the staff is hilarious! We are definitly returning on our trip next year to the Smoky Mountians!
