Ole Smoky Moonshine Mint Julep vs. Ole Smoky Moonshine Magararita

For the Kentucky Derby - nothing pairs better with this century-old horse race than a century-old moonshine recipe from Ole Smoky® Moonshine – except for a big hat! Whether you’re at the race or watching at home, you’ll have a custom cocktail as distinctive as your hat. So sit back and relax with a glass of Ole Smoky Moonshine Mint Julep, and let the races begin!

If you’re in the mood for a fiesta – we’ve got you and your amigos covered – celebrate with a Moonshine Margarita. For some extra flair serve up your margs in a mason jar – nothing like sippin’ the good stuff right from the bottle.

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, the first-ever legal moonshine in Tennessee, 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 Mason jars, Ole Smoky flagship products include Original Moonshine (100 proof “sippin’ moonshine”), Apple PieTM Moonshine, and Moonshine CherriesTM (fresh maraschino cherries soaked in 100-proof moonshine). Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine is based in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
