    ...And I Still Do.

    I have straight (double filtered) corn whiskey, peach, and blueberry right now. I am currently experimenting with a vanilla extract - taste test June 6! And I'm playing with mixes with candied strawberries; still more work to get the cut right. Grew up with shine and will always...

    The Real Deal

    good shine looks like water and tastes like strong corn whiskey, real strong. you can take small sips or use a little to get a campfire started with damp twigs. it can even make some kinds of paint bubble and peel. ive had the same jar in the freezer for almost a year and its...
