  • We always stop at Ole Smokey every time we're in town, but tonight was a great! Chris P was the best!!! Thanks again Chris for everything!  more »
  • Visited Gatlinburg with my family of 20+ for a week and we absolutely LOVED Ole Smoky. The products themselves (the moonshine is fantastic and so is the whiskey) as well as the experience. We did the ...  more »
  • We had a fun time doing a tasting. Our bartender was fun to and very informative. They offer many different types of moonshine. The moonshine is a little pricey.  more »

  • We did the moonshine tasting, and the bartender, Benjamin, was highly entertaining! I've never drank so much moonshine in my life, and it was just a tasting. We got to try every single flavor that they made, and it was awesome!! We paid $5 for the tasting per adult, but they gave us coupons for $5 off a purchase over $5 for each tasting we purchased. We ended up buying 2 bottles of moonshine. It was a really great experience. I highly recommend it!
  • $5 per person to taste, but you get $5 off on a purchase after. Would have liked to try the Harley Davidson Shine, but it wasn't offered. (At $35 a qt I can see why.) The gal who served us was hilarious and witty. Will definitely be back.
  • Pay $5 to sample about 13 different types of shine then they give u $5 gift coupon so if u buy something u can use it. There's another ole smokey moonshine shop down the street also that has different flavors. This one had more of the fruity stuff. The other one had more of the standard whiskey and blends.... more traditional stuff. Well worth stopping in even if you don't drink it is neat to see how they make it.
  • My husband and I had a fun time stopping in here while out walking the Parkway one night. It was incredibly hot (way moreso than outside), but we decided to stick it out and were glad we did. We did the full moonshine sampler for only $5/person, and then they gave us each a $5 coupon to use, too. Our bartender Abby was hilarious, cracking jokes the whole time she was serving us and several others. She also knew a lot about all the jars and products. You could tell she was worn by the end of the day, but she still made it a great experience. We even got a little buzz from the samples and took home a jar of peaches for later.
  • Five bucks to taste all the flavors when you also get a hilarious man like Benji to take you on an adventure through all of them. Plus you get three $5 off coupons and you can use 2 in one transaction. $25 per bottle is a little high for me, but again, when you consider it's 750ml like a standard bottle of any other liquor, I'd say it fits in the going rate. Ended up getting three bottles of flavors I can't find back at home. In all reality, you come here for the experience not just the shine. Open up and joke around, it's way more fun that way.
