Ole Smoky Moonshine

famousdixie

We visited the Ole Smoky Moonshine distillery in Gatlinburg and I was blown away at how amazing it was! The moonshine is given out in samples for tasting at the bar so we got to try every flavor! Yaeyah! I was warm and fuzzy after all that goodness! The flavors are quite impressive and the alcohol strengths vary. Blue Flame is the highest at 128 proof. Back when moonshiners wanted to measure the quality and taste of their liquor, they would burn the alcohol and judge it by the blue flame that was produced. Hence, the name. They even had a pumpkin pie moonshine! I was most impressed with the Hunch Punch Lightin. Tastes just like fruit punch. If you want to check out all their flavors, products, and recipes head on over to http://olesmoky.com/ and grab yourself a jar! You won’t be disappointed folks. <!

If you have an Oak Barrel that you have used for aging another spirit for a few weeks, that other spirit will be deeply soaked into the oak.  While it is possible to remove the other spirits by soaking in water…
