Summer is upon us and the folks at Ole Smoky® Moonshine want you to take full advantage. Ole Smoky’s two new flavors Peach Moonshine™ and Blackberry Moonshine™are fresh off the still and shipping out statewide in their home state of Tennessee this month by way of Athens Distributing and B&T Distributing. Later this summer, Peach Moonshine will make its way to additional states including Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri and South Carolina.
Any way you slice it, peach has long been a traditional flavor of the American South. From chilled preserves to warm cobbler – in homemade marinades, sauces and glazes – its flavor profile adds just the right touch of aromatic sweetness. Ole Smoky celebrates this beloved summer stone fruit with Ole Smoky’s Peach Moonshine. At 40 proof, you’ll find it easy to sip, whether straight, over ice or mixed into a creative cocktail. We think it’s peachy keen.
One of the joys of country livin’ is pickin’ wild blackberries. This fresh sun-ripened sweetness can now be found in Ole Smoky’s Blackberry Moonshine, a mason jar full of delicious flavor from our own family recipe. It’s perfect for sipping at a backyard barbeque- or better yet, on the front porch, where you can share with the neighbors. It’s 40 proof and ripe for the pickin’!
Ole Smoky has been ramping up distribution across the U.S. and has been seen everywhere from the Aspen Food & Wine Festival to NASCAR races to backstage at the ACM’s (Academy of Country Music Awards) in Las Vegas and into the hands of celebrities like Nick Lachey and Blake Shelton.
When the state of Tennessee changed its laws in July 2009, allowing the licensed production of whiskey and other spirits across new counties, a group of local families saw an opportunity to showcase the art of superior, mountain-made moonshine. Ole Smoky Moonshine, “Tennessee’s first legal moonshine”, is a line of authentic products made from family recipes passed down through generations by inhabitants of the Great Smoky Mountains region of Appalachia.
Packaged in traditional 750 ml mason jars, Ole Smoky flagship products include Ole Smoky Original Moonshine (100 proof “sippin’ moonshine”), Ole SmokyMoonshine Cherries™ (fresh maraschino cherries soaked in 100-proof moonshine) and Ole Smoky Apple Pie Moonshine™ (40 proof Americana in a jar). Also available for purchase at the distillery is a variety of Ole Smoky Moonshine™ infused sauces, swag and seasonal flavors which include Blueberry, Grape, Strawberry, Lemon Drop, Peach, Hunch Punch and Pink Lemonade! Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine is based in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Retail price $20-$25, with modest fluctuations by state.
