Tennessee is moonshine country.

If you want proof, just listen to the lyrics of “Rocky Top” – one of the state’s official songs and the fight song for the University of Tennessee.

As a kid, I happily sang along about missing federal agents who are still looking for that moonshine still.

I rode Thunder Road in Dollywood, happily being jolted around my motion seat while getting an education in the history of NASCAR and moonshine.

If I’m being honest, the true meaning of things like Rocky Top and Thunder Road were lost on me until I became an adult. But, by that time, the lore of Tennessee moonshine was just part of my DNA.

It’s this culture around moonshine that allowed Popcorn Sutton to thrive.

Although Sutton left behind a complicated legacy, the man was the father of moonshine, and he is probably a huge reason you’ll see so many distilleries across the Smokies today.

Moonshine tastings in the Great Smoky Mountains

Although the legal distilleries are taxed, regulated and arguably watered down versions of the real thing, folks still get pretty excited about the stuff.

Not convinced? Consider the fact that Ole Smoky is currently the most visited distillery in the world, drawing in 4.5 million visitors just last year.

So if you’re visiting Gatlinburg and want to see what all the fuss is about, you might be thinking about doing a moonshine tasting.

Some moonshine tastings are free, but some cost $5.

I find that the $5 tastings are more of an experience. Your moonshine guides will put on a bit of an informational comedy routine while you get buzzed on moonshine.

Completely unrelated, the jokes tend to get funnier after you’ve had a few samples.

What are the best moonshine flavors in Tennessee?

Choosing the right flavor for your palette can be intimidating. With many distilleries in the area and every flavor under the sun to choose from, it can be hard to know what to even start with.

While we all have our favorites, it’s hard to go wrong with the classics like the blackberry, apple pie and coffee flavors.

But if you’re the adventurous type, try something you never knew existed. Banana Pudding moonshine? Sounds weird, but it might just surprise you.
