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.

Enjoyed the moonshine tasting and wound up buying three flavors! Love the different options! Live musical entertainment just outside the door added to the experience!

A group of girls and I were in town for a bachelorette party and this was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. Gary was incredibly patient with our tardy group, a continuous smile on his face, and the cutest (way cooler than me)...More

Yes, we are open on Sunday, however, Tennessee law only permits us to sell alcohol between Noon and 7:00 PM on Sunday. We look forward to seeing you soon!

It’s not really that kind of bar. It’s more like a store with a bar in the middle where you taste the moonshine. However, right outside the store is a bunch if rocking chairs in front of a stage where they play live music.
