That is the TRUTH! I always feel bad when I see people buying the stuff thinking its something that is made in the "hills of Tennessee," when actually it is owned by a bunch of fruity lawyers who found a loophole in the system.

Now they got the brand with Popcorns name on it ,Like he made it.Even got a cheap little card on it telling about popcorn.Pizzes me to no end that someone is making a profit off his name and they would not let him make one off his "Likker" in peace.BA%TARDS!!!!
That is one o the things that I hate about it too. These Ole Smoky people are the biggest bunch of fakes I have ever seen. They keep trying to claim that its a family business, when in actuality its a bunch of lawyers who wouldn't know the first thing about moonshine. Its embarrassing!

There's nothing really authentic about Ole Smoky Distillery! Its owned by a bunch of lawyers and a couple of homosexuals who don't know anything about moonshining. This is not what I would call real moonshine and it should be a crime for them to make some of the claims that they do. Moonshine is a type of liquor that was made in the mountains, not in a strip mall in the middle of Gatlinburg. Popcorn Sutton would be turning over in his grave if he saw this farce.
I don't have anything against gay people, but I can guarantee you if a lot of these guys buying this product knew that it was owned by some city-slicker homosexuals, they probably wouldn't think it was all that cool. I think they misrepresent what the product actually is and who is actually producing it

Ole Smoky Distilliery is a joke! Have you met the people that own this place? I don't think they know anything about moonshine or Tennessee.

Me too! Its kind of sad. These people think they are getting moonshine when they are really getting shafted.

Went there the other day. The place is a complete joke. Not only do these people not know anything about making moonshine, but they obviously don't know anything about running a business either. Maybe they should stick to suing people to make a buck.

I'm pretty sure all you guys are haters just to be haters. What exactly make this "fake" moonshine. Moonshine is an unaged corn whiskey and I'm pretty sure that's what Ole Smoky makes. As far as the owners being city slickers, I'm not sure where that came from. All three were born and raised in East TN. Just because they have all their teeth and aren't dumb enough to post nationally wide seen movies of them making shine illegally in the woods that got Popcorn in trouble ( nothing against popcorn just using as reference) you guys call them city slickers and homos. Haters because ya'll are jealous! If anything Ole Smoky is bringing great revenue that is helping our economy in the great state of TN.

I am NOT an owner nor do I have any relation to any of the owners. I'm just not someone that is ignorant and blogs stuff that has NO truth behind it!

What you guys are writing is just like saying that legal medicinal marijuana if fake too. It makes no sense and just sounds ignorant!

If Popcorn decided to open a legal distillery would that make his moonshine fake and him a homo too??? Doesn't make sense..

I absolutley agree with you!! The ignorance of people never seem to amaze me, they think just because this stuff isnt 190 proof that its fake. Well I tried one shot and didnt want another one for sure. So all you people on here hating on Ol Smokey , go sit your stand up and drink some of Ol Smokey shine and see how long you can keep standing!!!

All legality and hogwash fightin' aside, any of y'all actually tried it side by side with shine fresh out the still to see how it compares? I have yet to have any but knowing the real deal, both cut with water and fresh from the coil, I'm curious about it.

Its not good liquor,especially the Apple Pie.It didn't read well on my hydrometer either,obviously its watered down.The corn is ground by a local man.Junky field corn that isn't sprouted.Local folks can buy shine around here for $10 clear and apple pie for $15.Don't buy it from ole Smokey! If the rest of the bunch is like Gary and Clive..go figure! And Tashia...A person could get drunk on cheap beer too, but would they want to?

i tried the ole smoky moonshine i thought it tasted pretty good but i dont think it taste like moonshine. all moonshine ive had before has had a distinct flavor to it. and as for the flavored ones they make if i wanted a low alcohol fruity drink i would just get a wine cooler thats a lot cheaper and taste better. just my opinion and opinions are like assholes
