All About Virginia Moonshine

Rev George Thorpe is said to have discovered Virginia Moonshine in 1620. He was an English colonist and he and his friends came across this whiskey and can therefore be said to have discovered it. Virginia moonshine is a good whiskey that has been around since then and is generally made from un aged whiskey. It is now a favorite for many in the region. See below some facts on Virginia moonshine.

In the 1920, this whiskey started facing bans and a lot of the distillers were forced to either leave it alone all together or to do their business underground. This involved a lot of skill and hide and seek games with the law enforcement but somehow the whiskey continued to thrive even under the circumstances. It was made legal by the 1980s and the whiskey is currently thriving in the region and beyond. Virginia moonshine has experienced a growth spurt since its rebirth that has helped it reach beyond the borders and the prices have definitely gone higher with time.

Is it safe to take it? This whiskey is a fresh corn whiskey that is absolutely safe. It is processed, fermented and double distilled under the best conditions in the land. All the safety regulations have been upheld during its processing and to affirm this is the fact that it has been authorized by the relevant authorizing bodies in Virginia.

Because of the show known as moonshiners which was done by a business partner of Miller, Virginia Moonshine gained popularity and was kind of reborn. What they did was show people how they made the stills while in the woods of Virginia. The ‘shiners’ became very popular and were even celebrities because of this show they did.

At the beginning, Smith was doing this illegally because he learnt the art from his father and took on the mantle. He has legalized it by getting a permit and is now a business partner of Miller as he sells his version of Virginia Moonshine known as Climax Moonshine. Even though this show made him a celebrity and he could pass as a movie actor, this was not his end goal. The whole idea of the show was to make the drink known to people and remove the bitter taste that they have about it, to show them that it is safe to drink.

The show helped to show that Moonshine can now be trusted because it is not what it was before, dangerous and illegal. Moonshine is now popular and has gained fans because people have trusted it. People are now very curious to try out this whiskey because of the story they have been told about it and because of the fact that it was once prohibited and dangerous.
