Moonshine Hits the Mainstream

It’s that time of year to sip scotch whiskey by the fire and we enjoy a good dram of Macallan 17 year, Highland Park Dark Origins or Balvenie most of the time but it’s also high time for something new. We were a tad skeptical on the flavored moonshine we were presented with recently at Pearl’s on Sunset during a tasting dinner, but it surprisingly hit all the right notes and was delicious to sip solo or mix with drinks.

STILLHOUSE SPIRITS CO. was founded in 2012 with STILLHOUSE® Original Moonshine and has received two medals at the San Francisco International Spirits Competition. The premium spirits company uses 100% estate-grown corn in a propriety recipe and distills it five times for a superior flavor and purity. Every jug of STILLHOUSE is produced and bottled in Louisville, Kentucky.

The brand recently expanded its acclaimed whiskey portfolio with four new flavors: Red Hot, Peach Tea, Apple Crisp and Coconut. All are infused into the award-winning moonshine spirit, and packaged in the Brand’s patented glass jug.

 “STILLHOUSE’s dynamic portfolio sets the standard for moonshine cocktail lovers, from the higher proof STILLHOUSE® Original Moonshine (80-proof) to the mixer-friendly, naturally infused flavors (40-proof),” says Brad Beckerman, Founder & CEO, “We are pushing the boundaries of consumer expectations around moonshine. With our full portfolio, we’re capitalizing on the growing demand and popularity of the whiskey category and giving consumers yet another reason to celebrate with friends.”
