Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine

The best packaging design I've seen in years; with thanks to Glen.

Conditions in the area were good for growing corn, but it didn’t take long to realize a lot more money could be made off of a gallon of corn liquor than a bushel. Once the law began cracking down on the industry, the nature of our people and the rugged mountain terrain made way for the hay day of bootlegging..."

Excellent packaging, looks very authentic! Reminds me of a great doc about Popcorn Sutton, a old time Tennessee moonshiner...
