  • Loved the moonshine tasting. It’s techinically free since they give you a five dollar coupon good towards any merchandise or moonshine. Also check out the local discount books as they offer ole smoky for ten percent off. They have shot glasses like the one I bought and a lot of shirts to choose from. Will be back as the moonshine is delicious. Keep up the good work.
  • Excellent atmosphere! Great music and shine always go together! Big Red was awesome and kept the crowd going! She was very knowledgeable and professional! Found some great flavors thanks to her, especially the Hunch Punch! Thanks again and we’ll see y’all next time!!
  • My husband and I love this place. My husband always participate in the samples station. You have to try it once for the experience! It was free but now it is $5 to try and then they will give you a $5 coupon once they charge you. Apparently it is require by law now that they have to charge you >_
  • I've never been a fan of normal moonshine, but I wanted to try the flavors anyways. My previous experience is tiny distilleries in upstate NY, they were nothing to write home about. I must say, Ole Smoky is doing an excellent job making it into a social drink! The tastings are worth it if you are unsure what flavors you like or want. The free cooler is pretty decent for being free with the purchase of 5 bottles, wish it was a little more rugged though. If you are a whiskey fan you DEFINITELY have to try out the caramel whiskey, it is very smooth, especially for the price!
  • We went in for a tasting and Alyssa helped us. She was wonderful! She had a great sense of humor and was very knowledgeable about all of their products. We only planned on tasting, but ended up buying 6 bottles! Very glad we did though, the moonshine is very tasty. They have an array of flavors, something to please everyone for sure.
