Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine is entering the premium spirits market with the debut of its first barrel-aged premium product, Ole Smoky Charred Moonshine. The initial batch will be in limited release nationwide this spring, with only 3500 cases spread out over 49 states and the rest available exclusively at the Ole Smoky distillery, known as “The Holler.”
Tennessee distillers have been perfecting the art of making mountain whiskey for over a century. While the clear hue of traditional moonshine embodies the process of fermenting and distilling local corn grain inside metal stills, some was stored in barrels to see just how good it could get. Ole Smoky Charred is aged in toasted bourbon barrels for 3-4 months, and then blended for consistency.
