It's hard to believe that in just 12 years, Ole Smoky has grown to become the most visited distillery in the world, seeing more than double the visitors in a year than all of Scotland's distilleries combined!
Ole Smoky has long had ambitions to get into the whiskey market, but for the longest time blends and flavored whiskey's or charred moonshine were all you could find. But that all changed last year when they introduced James Ownby Reserve Tennessee Bourbon - a whiskey named after one of the Overmountain Men who helped turn the Revolutionary War at the Battle of Kings Mountain.
Join me as I chat about this and the origins of Ole Smoky with its co-Founder Joe Baker.
