Owner description: 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.

I could sit here all day. Between wandering in the shop (we didn't do any sampling since we had the kids with us) and sitting in the rocking chair outside listening to the live bluegrass all while smelling the mash, it is a favorite place of mine.

We stop every time we are in the area and I look forward to the next visit.

Been here before and had a good experience
This time was rushed and the lady with curly hair said it was her first day.
She was rude maybe she hasn't had enough experience with the public?
We told many friends this is something fun to do so hopefully this was just a one time occurance due to the girl being new but she was rushy and snappy . Not very friendly and had a bit of an attitude right in front of eveyone.
Not sure if this is the job for her .
I would still recommend this place .maybe just not her and the person to deal with

Thank you for dropping by to sample some of the Worlds Best Selling Moonshine! I will look into your server. Generally we have quite a few working at the same time. You are welcome to scout out the bartender you would prefer to taste with next time to ensure you get a true Ole Smoky experience. Usually, just listen for the crowd that is laughing the loudest. We hope to see you back again soon. Shine Responsibly!
