*A little bit about Moonshine:   During prohibition years, Americans who made whiskey illegally distilled at night, and became known as “moonshiners.”  Today, with the growing number of micro-distillers in the U.S. (more than 200 according to the American Distilling Institute) Moonshine’s credibility has increased.  These days Moonshine and it’s most recognized brands, has become quite popular and is a growing trend.
