STILLHOUSE® has elevated the classic American craft of making moonshine by using estate-grown corn and a proprietary recipe, then distilling it five times for superior quality and a remarkably smooth finish. STILLHOUSE Moonshine is made from 100% Corn Whiskey. It’s all-natural, handcrafted and copper pot distilled. Because it isn’t aged or stored in barrels, STILLHOUSE Moonshine has neither the brown color nor the heaviness of traditional whiskey. (It also happens to be gluten-free.) Because of its versatility, STILLHOUSE Moonshine cuts across traditional product categories, appealing to connoisseurs of whiskey, vodka, tequila and rum, among other spirits.
