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.

There was a great country fiddler right outside. This was a nice tasting. Not as entertaining as the one at Sugarlands but the moonshine was good.

Had fun tasting all of the flavors, Big Billy was knowledgeable and quite funny. Family rocked in the chairs, and listened to a bluegrass band. Was a nice stop, definitely not to be missed if you have the time in Gatlingburg.

We tried several varieties of shine. Some we liked some we were MEH. The Blue Flame will knock you on your butt 128 proof. Eat something before you go. Very friendly servers.

This was a solid moonshine tasting experience with several quality shines. Cost is $5 (bring your ID) but you get a $5 coupon to use toward anything in the store. This location is in the very busy Island section of the strip in Pigeon Forge....More
