Located on The Parkway, Ole Smoky Distillery at Moonshine Holler is a downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee, stop that makes life easy for tour operators. The most-visited distillery in the United States, Ole Smoky Distillery ships Tennessee moonshine to all 50 states and 55 countries.
“There’s a lot of lore about moonshine in Tennessee, and I talk about that as well as the processes as groups gather along the windows that look into the distillery area,” said Johnny Baker, groups coordinator.
One large windowed space is open screening. Visitors can smell the distinct aroma of cooking and fermenting grains as the moonshine is processed in authentic working moonshine stills on-site. An open courtyard separates the distillery from the tasting room and retail store.
Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery produces moonshine with a variety of alcoholic content from high-proof products, such as White Lightning and Blue Flame, to milder, flavored moonshine – all packaged in the distillery’s distinctive mason jars. “Apple Pie is our best-selling moonshine at this time,” Baker said.
“Here at ‘the holler’ we sometimes offer small batches of flavors we are considering adding to our product list.”
