Moonshiner Tim Smith Goes Legit, Launches Tim Smith’s Climax Moonshine Brand
Climax, Va. (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Moonshiner Tim Smith spent decades defying the law, and is now defying the odds doing what moonshiners in previous generations couldn’t – bringing his authentic backwoods recipe to the public for legal consumption. Georgia and South Carolina are the first states to get a taste of Smith’s illegal-gone-legal Climax Moonshine.
Despite his general disregard for authority, Smith has become an authority himself. A notorious moonshiner from Climax, Va., and star of a popular reality series, Smith knows what good, pure and strong moonshine should taste like.
“My moonshine is legit, and it’s still the real deal,” said Smith. “There’s a right and wrong way to make moonshine, and for me, the right way is the only way. I don’t take shortcuts and am proud of the quality product I’ve been crafting for decades.”
Climax Moonshine is pot-distilled from an original family recipe using corn, rye and barley malt mash. At 90 proof, it’s clean and natural tasting with a subtle sweetness. Smith will soon bottle two flavored moonshines – Grape and Peach Lightning – which are made the hard way, distilled from real fruit instead of adding fruit later like other ‘shines. Both fruit flavors are 79 proof.
“People told me I’d never do it, and I’m proving them wrong,” said Smith. “I want to offer people the best moonshine on the market and this is my chance to show the world how real moonshine should taste.”
Smith’s moonshine process takes time, and he’s making it as quickly as he can with plans for nationwide availability. Climax Moonshine is currently available in liquor stores, restaurants and bars throughout Georgia and South Carolina. Limestone Branch Distillery located in the heart of Bourbon Country is the home of Climax Moonshine. Visitors who stop by may be able to see Smith mixing up a batch.
Climax Moonshine is a brand of Prost Beverage Company, LLC.
