Come Taste Grandpa Smith’s Flavored Moonshine
Smith Creek Distillery is an authentic moonshine tasting attraction located in Nashville, Tennessee at Opry Mills. Tourists from multiple states travel to experience our down-home party in a jar. Smith Creek’s flavored moonshine still has the old-fashioned taste that mountain folk once enjoyed, sitting on their front porches, strumming a banjo or playing the guitar, while singing with joy and swigging from a jug in between songs. Just like Grandpa’s front porch, our distilleries are family friendly!
The recipe for moonshine is simply made from a base of corn, sugar, yeast and water. However, we took this legendary recipe to a whole new level by adding the special twist of different flavors, sometimes smooth, sometimes bold, but flavors that are always distinct. The term moonshine comes from the fact that the mountain folk did their distilling in the darkness, with the moon as their only source of light. Because of their late night activities, the term moonshine became associated solely with the spirits these moonshiners made.
Our first of three locations was launched in 2015 at the prominent Branson Landing in Branson, Missouri. That was quickly followed in 2016 by our Pigeon Forge, Tennessee store, situated in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. The concept of flavored moonshine exploded with such an astonishing favor among our customers that we’re happy to announce our third store, now open for business, in the Opry Mills mall, neighbor to Nashville’s historic Grand Ole’ Opry.
At the heart of the Smith Creek Distillery experience is the opportunity to sample multiple flavors of moonshine at our free sample tasting bar. Eager to answer all questions, our bartenders enthusiastically explain the history behind each flavor. And there are plenty from which to choose. Flavors like Straight White Lightnin’, Apple Pie, Salted Caramel, Coffee, Cinnamon, Peach, and Sweet Tea are a few flavors on the free-tasting menu. The wide variety gives our guests a complete moonshine-tasting experience, unlike any other, which offers them an opportunity to discover their favorite flavor before heading home with a few jars.
In addition to the free tasting bar, Smith Creek Distillery also features a large retail store where guests can purchase bottled moonshines, apparel, jams, sauces, dry rubs, scented candles and more. So come on down and visit Smith Creek Distillery. Stroll through the covered bridge. Hear the crickets chirping next to the ole’ mill. See Grandpa’s truck run amuck in Smith Creek. Whether you love moonshine, or simply trying it out for the first time, don’t miss the opportunity to sample some shine and enjoy a great time at Smith Creek Distillery.
