Moonshine is more than a drink, it’s an integral part of American history. When Prohibition hit, legitimate alcohol-driven establishments were forced to close their doors and a grassroots homebrew effort sprang to life. People found ways to make their own DIY spirits, creating moonshine with whatever they had on hand.

Old boilers and upcycled metal piping became stills. Grains like rye and maize (corn) were the likely main ingredients, but people threw in what they had. Raisins? Sure. Apricots? Why not. It was an incredible example of ingenuity and the American spirit (literally).

This Personalized Moonshine Bootleg Kit brings back a mega dose of that same nostalgia, while also feeling… well… just a little bit naughty. The kit has almost everything the lucky recipient needs to make their own moonshine, including major pieces of equipment like an American white oak barrel with its own stand, a bung and spigot, essence, and complete instructions, so even those new to moonshine can compete with their experienced neighbors. Just add the essence to your choice of neutral vodka or grain alcohol and watch the magic happen.

This kit doubles as a long-lasting display. Distillers can show off their moonshine in an attractive barrel that’s ready to serve whenever the mood strikes. So hang some curtains over the windows, invite some friends for “book club,” and launch the best speakeasy this side of the 18th Amendment.

How does it work?

To start, cure your barrel then pour grain alcohol or neutral flavored vodka into the vessel along your Kentucky Bourbon Essence (included). Give it a good shake to incorporate the ingredients then sit tight because in just two weeks time your one-of-a-kind blend will be aged to perfection and ready to serve straight from the tap.
