What is Moonshine?
While moonshine is well known in some parts of North America it is just now making it’s way to Ontario, driven by the rise of small batch distillers.
Moonshine is simply unaged whisky, and well-made moonshine is an excellent spirit. Its flavour profile is different than an aged whisky in that it does not pick up the flavours contributed by the barrels but rather highlights the underlying ingredients.
Junction 56 Distillery in Stratford, Ontario makes a 100% corn based moonshine that is a perfect mixer for many cocktails and a very versatile spirit.
