This Moonshine Tasting Room In Tennessee Is One Hidden Speakeasy You’ll Want To Tour
If you’ve ever spent much time in the south, then you know that moonshine is the kind of drink that has a strong following in Tennessee. It has a deep history in the heart of the state and is now available to locals and tourists alike. We found our way out to East Tennessee to experience all the fun at Ole Smoky Moonshine, and we have a feeling you just might fall in love with this quirky spot!
Ole Smoky Moonshine has a few locations in Tennessee, and each of them sell their rustic corn-whiskey in spades. It's a fun experience, especially in the heart of the south, and will definitely open your eyes to all sorts of new flavors.
You can visit for yourself, or you can shop their massive collection of moonshine online for gifts or even to help celebrate the holidays. We'd recommend heading out to the downtown Gatlinburg location if you're looking for an in-person experience.
It's very proudly prominent that this moonshine is "Appalachian born and bred", honoring the Ole Smoky Families that first honed the art of moonshine during difficult economic periods throughout American history.
Since moonshine is all sorts of legal for those of drinking age nowadays, Ole Smoky Moonshine has carried on the deep history of a long-lost art form. It was even the first federally licensed distillery in East Tennessee! That's pretty incredible if you ask us.
You're able to try samples at each location for just $5, which is a pretty dang good deal if you ask us. You can sample anything from Apple Pie Moonshine to the original unaged corn whiskey, and you can definitely take your favorites home.
This isn't a commercialization of Tennessee's moonshine history - this is Old Smoky Moonshine keeping our history alive. Take a tour and learn about the process, and fall more in love with our dear southern state. There's a lot of heart tucked away in the past of Tennessee and this is simply one way to experience it.
Would you visit? Have you been? There are locations in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Barrelhouse and Nashville if you're looking to experience this Tennessee Treasure first-hand. Have fun, and leave your thoughts in the comments below!
