From the breweries of Stillhouse comes the new Moonshine Whiskey, an all-clear corn beverage with multi-layered flavor and unique texture. Interestingly enough, the story of Moonshine’s success began during the prohibition era in the United States, when all forms of alcohol was banned (1920-1933). The noble wish to turn America into an alcohol-free nation eventually failed, and the 13 years of fight against liquors proved to be the most prosperous ones for some producers of alcoholic beverages according to Whiskey Watch.
The Moonshine Whiskey got its name from the way its producers had to transport the beverage to its destination: during nighttime. Today each bottle is presented in its own unique casing, shaped like two book volumes, to remind us of the harsh times in which alcohol producers had to find all sorts of ingenious ways to transport and deliver their products. Inside the box, customers will also find the detailed story of the prohibition-time Moonshine.
Gluten-free, the whiskey is made from 100% estate grown corn with 80 degree proof. As mentioned before, the taste is multi-layered: the basic flavor is mellow and smooth, with a typical unrefined-sugar sweetness; the nose reminds of freshly-cut corn; the final notes are tempered and pleasant, with a unique mild warmth in texture. To create this special beverage, Perry Leng and Brad Beckerman worked together for thee years, experimenting on different ideas and flavors. You will only find the whiskey in some areas of New York, Austin, Virginia and Los Angeles. No word on the price just yet.
