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.

The $5 for the moonshine samples was well worth it. The bartenders were informative & hilarious. We couldn’t help but not buy some goodies to take home. We definitely recommend “Some Beach” & “Mountain Java” moonshines.

We had a blast doing moonshine tastings at Ole Smokey Moonshine. Staff was really nice and bartenders were hilarious. 5 dollar tastings but you got a 5 will off purchase coupon. We actually bought souvenirs for our family back home with the coupon. 😁
