Absolutely LOVED this place! It is truly a gem. Having come from NC I was pleasantly surprised at all the amazing moonshine products! Customer service was great and they have some crazy delicious jerky flavors and nice souvenirs. We will definitely return each time we're in Pigeon Forge, TN. Recommended!

Such a great place for shopping, moonshine tasting or just hanging out in the lounge. We tasted all of the moonshine that was available that night, which was amazing and the tasting was free. We will definitely be back to visit this distillery the next time we're visiting the Smoky Mountains. Ask for Rob!

This is by far my favorite moonshine distillery to visit in the Gatlinburg area. Tastings are FREE. None of that pay and get a discount stuff. They have a wide variety of flavors. My favorite flavors are the Apple Pie Moonshine and Root Beer Cream. The staff is friendly and makes things really fun for visitors.

A fun place to stop when you visit the Old Mill area. The distillery offered free taste testing of several different moonshines and our flavor guide Rob was funny and entertaining. Our favorite was the French toast! We will definitely recommend this distillery to our friends traveling through Sevier County.

First time to visit but definitely not our last! Love this store. Friendly and helpful staff. Moonshine tasting was awesome. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable. Found many many flavors we loved, bought several! A lot of different ways to purchase your favorites; mini bottles and large bottles.

We had such a fun time moonshine tasting at Old Forge that we came again a few days later. Rob makes it so fun and personable instead of just “this is the next flavor...”. We had such a blast! Heck, I want to hire him for our upcoming party to do a moonshine tasting LOL. Do yourself a favor and visit Old Forge Distillery!
