Would you ever think that Moonshine would be legal where you could buy it in a store? I have started a new adventure and my family has moved up to North Dakota work in the oil fields. We were in Wal-Mart doing some shopping and I walked through the Alcohol section and look what I found.
They offer Two different kinds one is cherry and the other one is Apple Pie.
In the smoky mountains of TN the moonshine runs strong. Scots-Irsh ancestors brought over their knowledge and skills of whiskey making with them as they came to Appalachia.
Growing corn in the Appalachia was really good and it did not take long for them to realize alot more money could be made off a gallon of corn Liquor than a bushel. Then the law began cracking down on the industry, the nature of the people and the rugged mountain terrain make way for a hay day of bootlegging.
The people of Tennessee began to have a mistrust the Government. With Prohibition came a great demand for moonshine in the big cities. Hiding an operation in the mountains was easy compared to the challenges of transporting your wares into town. Agents would hide out along back country roads, waiting for the chance to nail a moonshine runner. The mountains are full
of stories of young men who ran liquor.
Recipes and traditions have been passed down through generations of families in the Virginians, Carolinas, Kentucky, Georgia, and Tennessee. Today, those tried and true family traditions live on in Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine. Our families were growing corn and making whiskey here before Tennessee was a state, and after years of having to hide from the law, we’re proud to finally be able to legally share the best spirits in the mountains.
Now you can buy your moonshine legal. I never thought I would see this until I watched moonshine on discovery channel and saw that Popcorn had died and his family were in process of making it legal.
