Made With American Oak Chips Moonshine is great, but aging it for a few weeks with oak chips makes it better.
It’s no secret that aging fresh whiskey in oak barrels will turn corn whiskey into bourbon; but bourbon takes two years. Traditional moonshiners, who weren’t sure they wouldn’t be in jail by then, took a practical approach and aged it with oak chips in a few weeks. It smoothed out the whiskey and “took the wang out of it.” It doesn’t take much, less than an ounce per bottle, to change the complexion of the whiskey from white lightning to smooth sipping.
We start with straight mountain moonshine, our own crafted product. After careful blending, we add oak chips that have been roasted to just the right color. Then we watch it carefully until just enough of the oak flavor has been transferred from the chips to the moonshine. When the time is right, day or night, out come the chips and its ready to bottle. The change is so dramatic it is hard to believe that it is the same product.
Finally, a moonshine that is easy to sip or to mix.
