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.

Very disappointing visit due to our host making political statements and insulting our group when we stated we didn't share his views. Keep politics away from drinking moonshine. It was absolutely ridiculous.

If you like moonshine and a good time you will like this place. Everyone likes to joke around while you are doing taste testing. So you all get to share some laughs.

The sampling was good but the bar tender was just going thru the motion. Definitely got the sense they didn't want to be there.
