Whether you're a fan of the Discovery Channel's "Moonshiners" reality series or not, everyone deserves the chance to savor Climax moonshine. Until recently, reality star Tim Smith was brewing moonshine illegally in his hometown of Climax, Virginia, but now his original pot-distilled family recipe graces the (legal) market in the form of a 90-proof spirit. People said he couldn't go straight, that such a disreputable liquor could never be mainstream, but Smith's disregard for authority only urged him to make his old-fashioned moonshine legal. And honestly, we couldn't be more thankful, as this stuff is the real deal!
Climax Moonshine is crafted from corn, rye and barley malt mash. The result is a clean, natural-tasting alcoholic beverage with a subtle sweetness that boldly defies convention. One of the best ways to enjoy Climax Moonshine is decidedly Southern — simply mix the alcohol with sweet tea for a no-fuss cocktail everyone can enjoy. For a peach-flavored tea, add peach bitters and some peach slices. And if you want a more traditional mixer, blend Climax Moonshine with agave nectar, mint leaves, watermelon cubes, ice and a mix of lemonade and Sprite. Trust us, there's nothing more refreshing on a hot summer's day than rocking on your front porch sipping a watermelon "moonito." But if you're really feeling adventurous, take a shot of Climax Moonshine backed with a shot of pickle juice! With Tim Smith Climax Moonshine, you're only limited by your imagination. Don't you just love the South?
