  • The service was top shelf! The products were top shelf! Had a fun time at the tasting meeting others vacationing from our home state, and our "bartender" was entertaining!  more »
  • The big draw to Ole Smoky is the atmosphere. Their shine is not as good as others but the live bluegrass draws huge crowds and makes up for their shine shortcomings. We were there Monday April 10th an...  more »

  • Good "show" with the guys and gals behind the bar. Jokes seem to change each time we go. Moonshine is good but they're charging $5 for a tasting now.
  • We just had an amazing experience with Anna, our tasting extraordinaire. She was funny, informative and accommodating. The guys at the register and the manager were also equally amazing, sweet and kind. Not a bad thing to say about this place. A very different experience than the one we had at their whiskey distillery up the street. See my review on that place but it was literally one of the WORST experiences we've ever had at a distillery and we run a whiskey blog so eek. If you only have time for one or the other, do the moonshine distillery and that comes from whiskey connoisseurs!
  • $5 for moonshine tastings, and it is worth it! You get to sample 12 different products and they are all amazing! Great discounts for purchases in the distillery that come with the tasting! Often live music
  • My significant other and I will be coming back just to buy things from here... This place is great! Some things you can get online but otherwise you have to come in. I really admire that about this place. Too bad I live 2 states away!
  • We have made multiple visits here. The tastings are fun, and the t-shirts are fabulous. My new favorite are the moonshine peaches ... adding the juice to sweet tea is delectable!
