Wine & Spirits

By Stef Schwalb

Bogged down with some seasonal blues? We know how you feel – chilly days and dark nights can do that to you. To elevate your spirits, we suggest you climb out from under the covers and a get a hold of Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine. There’s nothing to fear since this “mountain dew” is totally legal, and luckily for us, experts have brewed this from a centuries’ old recipe. So although it’s a seriously high-proof distilled spirit – it’s very much on the up and up.

The product line includes Original Moonshine (great for whiskey lovers); White Lightnin’ (ideal for mixing with your fave cocktails in place of gin, tequila, or vodka – an awesome alternative ingredient for margaritas and mojitos); Apple Pie Moonshine (just what it says – all the tastes you love about apple pie liquefied and jarred); Peach Moonshine (like having a traditional Southern cobbler in your cup); and Moonshine Cherries (oh, how we love these – maraschino cherries drenched in Ole Smoky moonshine that give cola, and anything else you want to pop them into, the ultimate kick).

As for the proof? It’s definitely in these products. The Original Moonshine, White Lightnin’, and Moonshine Cherries are all 100 proof; the Apple Pie and Peach Moonshines are also fierce at 40. Priced at around $28 and housed in classically cool jars, Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshines are bound to brighten your mood by offering delectable tastes to your tired, winter-worn mouth.
