Now available at Straub’s: Ole Smoky Authentic Tennessee Moonshine! Add a little kick to your BBQ with an American tradition that goes back hundreds of years. Try the Original, or enjoy the Apple Pie and Blackberry Flavors.
The Ole Smoky distillery in Gatlinburg, TN was formed by the lasting traditions of early settlers in the Smoky Mountains. This family came to the Smokies through Virginia and North Carolina and honed the art of whiskey making in order to survive during tough economic times. Most families from this area share a history of a family member making, running or selling whiskey. Today, the true moonshiners and bootleggers still consider it taboo to tell stories or brag about moonshine glory. Because of the consequences, talking about your craft or trade was something you just didn’t do.
How and Why?
When Tennessee state law recently changed to allow the distillation of spirits, the owners of Ole Smokey saw an opportunity to showcase the art of superior mountain-made moonshine. The Ole Smoky recipes are the product of the hard work and experience of local families who have made moonshine in the mountains for the last two hundred years.
Ole Smoky is the first federally licensed distillery in the history of East Tennessee.
Family Business, Local Suppliers…
This is a family business. Ole Smoky whiskey is born in the fertile soil of East Tennessee farms where their corn is raised and then transported to the family’s mill to be ground for Tennessee’s original moonshine. At the distillery, you can see the grains converted into the clear corn liquor Appalachia is famous for.
Varieties of Shine
OLE SMOKY® ORIGINAL MOONSHINE
For sippin’. A true moonshine experience. · Ole Smoky’s® Original Moonshine is an unaged corn whiskey made from corn grown by local farmers in East Tennessee. Their century-old recipe proclaims a grain bill of 80% corn, with the remaining 20% a secret that gives Ole Smoky® the distinct character and bold flavor of Tennessee moonshine. If you like whiskey, you don’t want to miss this one!

At 40 proof, it’s very drinkable and goes down as easy as a forkful of sweet apple pie. Try it chilled or warm!
