Original Moonshine Clear Corn Whiskey

As soon as the federal government began enforcing the Volstead Act, clandestine stills cropped up across the land to supply a crude, corn-based whiskey that—because it was delivered nocturnally by runners along little-used rural roads—became known as moonshine. Moonshine production continued even after the repeal of Prohibition in the 1930s, but the blue-collar brew only recently received a black-tie makeover at Stillhouse Distillery, which farms its corn on a 120-acre estate in Virginia and creates its spirit in a Prohibition-era copper still. Original Moonshine Clear Corn Whiskey is a sophisticated alternative to vodka whose subtle flavors of grain sugar and caramel will shine in your cocktail of choice.
