Bootleggers is believed to be the smallest batch distillery in the nation, brewing from 25 gallon pots we can maintain a closer, more regulated quality. Bootleggers small batch whiskey has maintained that great backwoods taste of white whiskey for hundreds of years and still makes it the same way. Remember "If you only get one shot", Make it Bootleggers.Hide
Opened in Spring of 2015, the Tennessee Stillhouse is making the first legal whiskey distilled in Chattanooga in over 100 years. It’s part experiment and innovation lab, part museum and all good. It’s a place to showcase the craft process and the whiskey tradition we come from, while also allowing us to get creative with techniques and showcase our current product. Each tour concludes with a full tasting of Chattanooga Whiskey and locally-produced Dr. Thacher’s Cocktail Syrup.Hide

Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery
The Holler: 903 Parkway, Gatlinburg, TN 37738, (865) 436-6995
Ole Smoky’s roots can be traced back, over 100 years ago, to the early settlers of the Smoky Mountains. Which means this isn’t just moonshine, it’s moonshine made with authenticity and enduring pride of the people in the Tennessee Mountains. In 2009, Tennessee law changed, and it was legal to make, distill and sell the infamous bootlegger’s hooch. It was at that point that a group of families decided to bring their artistry of superior moonshine making to the world at large. July 6, 2010 was the grand opening of Ole Smoky’s original moonshine distillery, the Holler, in Gatlinburg, TN. Ole Smoky became Tennessee’s first legal moonshine distillery as well as the most visited distillery in the world with over 2.5 million visitors annually.
The Barn: 131 The Island Drive, Pigeon Forge TN 37863, (865) 436-6995
Ole Smoky continued to grow through the years and with this success the company built a second distillery in Pigeon Forge, called the Barn. This location was created for visitors who couldn’t make it “up the hill” to Gatlinburg when visiting the world-class theme park, Dollywood. The Barn opened in October 2014, and features the same elements (distillery, tasting bar, retail store) as the Holler.
The Barrelhouse: 650 Parkway, Gatlinburg TN 37738, (865) 436-6995
In January 2016, Ole Smoky decided to introduce a whiskey line to their spirits portfolio when it merged their brand with another family-owned Tennessee whiskey. Ole Smoky whiskey is hand picked from barrels based on taste and color ensuring that the highest quality whiskey is produced. The grand opening of the new Ole Smoky whiskey distillery, the Barrelhouse, was held in February 2016. Today, Ole Smoky whiskey is exclusively available in Tennessee, Colorado, and Georgia.
