We’ve teamed up with some of the most notorious moonshiners in the Southeast from Discovery Channel’s Moonshiners to legally produce their spirits. Moonshine is a slang term for high-proof alcohol being sold illegally. By teaming up to distill these spirits in a controlled environment, you can expect quality and consistency from every jar.
These high proof spirits are typically thought of being enjoyed straight from the jar, but we’ve put together a few cocktails for you to enjoy while tuning in to the newest season of Discovery Channel’s Moonshiners airing on Tuesday, November 24th at 8:00 p.m. EST / 7:00 p.m. CST.
Mark Ramsey grew up exploring the woods of East Tenn. As a young man, he was introduced to a local moonshine expert and quickly learned the trade through hand on experience. He and his distilling partner, Digger Manes, now carry that journeyman craftsmanship forward with their distinctly delicious recipes!
Digger Manes has been around the still most of his life. As a young man, he was introduced to a local moonshine legend in Cocke County, Tenn. After putting in his time as a still hand, Digger, along with his distilling partner Mark Ramsey, has mastered the craft of distillation. He is now a legend in his own right.
Mark Rogers is a true American hunter, fisherman, and woodsman. He has made moonshine most of his life, learning the trade from his 12 uncles when he was only 8 years old. Mark was taught to slow down and make it right. Rogers says, “Once you’ve had some good liquor, you’ll know it.”
Jim Tom is a legendary moonshiner, master storyteller and still maker. Over the years, he has become one of the most skilled moonshiners in Appalachian and his original hand-crafted spirits were in high demand throughout the South. Today, Jim Tom is passing his lifetime of experience on to a new generation of distillers.
Tickle gained a wealth of old-time distilling knowledge from older relatives at a young age in Danville, Virginia. As a moonshiner, he experimented with recipes on his own ten-gallon still using a turkey fryer, jelly jars for double-thump kegs, and a shotgun condenser. Addicted to perfecting his craft, Tickle often states, “It gets in your blood. I’ll moonshine ‘til the day I die.”
Family first – that’s what moonshiner Patti Bryan was taught growing up in rural Louisiana. Everyone took pride in their responsibilities, whether it was fetching wood for the fire or cleaning fish for family supper. Distilling runs through the Parker-Bryan family-like moonshine through a still. Patti’s father, David, is a third-generation moonshiner who used his family’s craft to provide for his family. Patti learned everything she could to help, and her father was proud that moonshine came naturally to her. Today, Patti is a successful business owner, an avid hunter, angler, and a proud mother who enjoys carrying on her family’s legacy of ‘shining.
