Moonshine still here
Moonshine is like pickling — odds are you know somebody who engages in the practice — and whatever you’ve sampled out of a mason jar has either been fantastic or mouth-numbingly bad. The main difference is that moonshine is illegal, while pickles are kosher with the law.
Salon decided to look into whether our current do-it-yourself culture will expand into distilling spirits, despite that fact that it’s currently illegal to brew your own liquor without a licensed and registered still. The moonshine of today is apparently a far cry from the days of Prohibition — for example, it sounds like you might enjoy whiskey made from doughnuts.
