GATLINBURG – Ole Smoky Distillery is celebrating 10 years of legal distilling with the release of a special commemorative moonshine that pays homage to the drink’s rich history. Created with a mash bill of corn, rye, and barley, and handcrafted in a pot still, Ole Smoky 153 celebrates the taste of the past and the brand’s anniversary.

Founded in 2010, Ole Smoky became Tennessee’s First Legal Moonshine Distillery after the state legalized the production, distillation, and sale of the region’s infamous and illicit alcohol. The company traces its roots to the Smoky Mountains’ earliest settlers - families who produced moonshine with enduring pride and Appalachian spirit. The century-old recipe is still used today in Ole Smoky’s award-winning products.

“We have developed a new recipe that honors our 10 years of legal distilling and the history of moonshine which goes back centuries in East Tennessee,” said Joe Baker, Founder, Ole Smoky Distillery. “Over the last 10 years, we are proud to have introduced moonshine to an entirely new group of consumers across the country and around the world making us one of the nation’s fastest growing spirits companies.”

Ole Smoky 153 is a clear moonshine handcrafted in Tennessee at 153 proof. This special edition, limited release, will only be available for purchase at Ole Smoky’s The Holler and The Barn Distilleries in East Tennessee and at 6th & Peabody in Nashville.
