While watching a little Discovery Channel over the weekend I was bombarded with treated to a number of commercials promoting the network’s reality series Moonshiners. Now while I’ve yet to watch Moonshiners it did bring back memories of a moonshine I had the opportunity to sample during The Speakeasy Cocktail Festival here in Atlanta. This particular moonshine goes by the name of Ole Smoky Moonshine and I kid you not when I tell you that their Apple Pie Moonshine tasted like pure heaven. It was simply scrumptious. I’m not sure how I managed to forget about this Lushworthy gem, but thank you Moonshiners for reminding me thanks to your seemingly infinite promo commercials.
On top of their Apple Pie flavor, Ole Smoky comes in a variety of other flavors including peach and blackberry. They also of course have their original moonshine as well as their “White Lightnin” which they describe as being an alternative spirit to vodka, gin, etc. And if you really want to get the party started there’s always the Ole Smoky Moonshine Cherries which are maraschino cherries soaked in a jar of moonshine. (Side Note: If you don’t like liquor-soaked fruit then there’s a good chance you’re not human.) I do believe that I sampled the cherries as well as the original flavor, but the Ole Smoky Apple Pie Moonshine was so good that everything else became a blur. My apologies “everything else.”
Unfortunately, Ole Smoky Moonshine isn’t available at too many places so you might have to hit up those guys on Moonshiners to get the 4-1-1 on this Lushworthy delight.
