I Drank Moonshine

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 83 People

    So apparently in Switzerland,

    where I've got some family, there is a legal dispensation to brew up to 2 litres of schnapps per cow you own. Given that this is a ridiculous amount for its supposed purpose (treating colic) and there seems to be very little interest in policing it (my uncle doesn't own a...

    It's legal where I live to purchase moonshine

    in the store, as long as it comes from licensed distillers. They stock it in its own section, like it's a specialty liquor. It's sold in Mason jars with labels and bar codes; the cashier scans your jar of 'shine at checkout and announces your total as if you'd just bought a...

    Whoa!

    A fellow graduate student from West Virginia went home for Christmas and came back with a case his uncle had made, packaged in Mason jars.  Not much taste, like drinking EverClear, with an aftertaste somewhere between hominy and stale, wet cardboard.  Might have made a...

    One day I was spending the week with my best

    friend. He was/is so rad. He's pretty much my stoner buddy. We hang out and get stoned together. I'm not much of a drinker at all, but he loves to drink. One day he and I walked to his other friends house. His other friend had moonshine. I'm a lightweight when it's comes to...

    ...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...

    Definitely! Looking back at it, I was reckless. So many bad decisions, lots of fun though. We partied so much in college. We might have drank more before 21 then after.
