WHAT FLAVORS DO YOU OFFER?


We currently offer Palmetto Moonshine in five flavors: White Lightning, Peach, Blackberry, and Apple Pie. Our Palmetto Whiskey is available now with our Rye and Wheat versions coming soon.




WHAT IS THE PROOF OF YOUR MOONSHINE AND WHISKEY?


White Lightning is 105 proof, Flavors are 45 proof. Palmetto Whiskey is 89.3 proof (44.65 ABV). The Rye and the Wheat are coming soon.




WHY ARE YOUR MOONSHINE FLAVORS LOWER PROOF THAN THE WHITE LIGHTNING?


Prior to releasing our flavored moonshine, we conducted taste tests and found that most individuals enjoyed the taste best at around 45 proof. We wanted to provide something that could be enjoyed on its own by many people, rather than making something with a higher alcohol content that not as many individuals would enjoy.




DO YOU MAKE YOUR MOONSHINE ON SITE AT YOUR DISTILLERY?


Yes, we do! We do not outsource any part of the process. We make the mash, distill the product, bottle, label, and pack… All on site! You can come to the distillery Monday through Friday to see the still in action if you don’t believe us!




WHY ISN'T THERE FRUIT IN YOUR FLAVORED SHINES?


We don't use fruit in the jar because adding fruit displaces the liquor... meaning that you get less liquor for your money. We use all natural, local fruit juices to mix with our White Lightning. For us, it comes down to an ethical decision... we want to give our customers the most "bang for their buck."




IS PALMETTO WHISKEY AGED?


Yes, it is a young whiskey aged less than two years in new French oak.




WHAT IS PALMETTO WHISKEY MADE OF?


We use 21% rye and 51% corn and malted barley.
