If you’re looking to try hooch, you have a few options to choose from. You could try your friend’s backyard swill—but it might not taste great and it might be unsafe to drink. You can try some mass-produced product from Big Whiskey, but it’s really not the same now is it? Or you can try small-batch, micro-distilled ‘shine made by an authentic moonshine company like ours.
If any of the five signs below apply to you, then you definitely need to try our Hatfield & McCoy ‘shine.
1. You want to know what all the fuss is about.
Given how moonshine has risen in popularity in the past few years, it’s no wonder you’re interested in giving it a taste. An un-aged white corn whiskey, ‘shine is potent but delicious.
If you’re bored of drinking beer and wine, and you want to try something with a little more kick, hooch is definitely what you’ve been looking for. However, if you’re trying it for the first time, you can’t just try any old ‘shine—you have to try the best in order to truly understand what all the fuss is about. To appreciate it. To love it. That’s one reason why you should try Hatfield & McCoy’s. It’s high quality hooch that’ll go down smooth.
2. You appreciate handcrafted products.
Sure, you could opt for some mass-produced ‘shine made by Big Whiskey, but why would you? It might be easily found in liquor stores and marketed as moonshine, but it’s just not the same. Hatfield & McCoy’s moonshine is a premium white corn whiskey that’s hand crafted in small batches. It’s home fermented, home distilled, and even home bottled in small batches so there’s enough care and attention to go into each one. It’s made with West Virginia grown corn; it’s all natural; it’s gluten-free; and it’s smooth. There’s just no comparing small-batch, micro-distilled moonshine to the mass-produced stuff.
3. You want to taste a piece of American history.
The Hatfields and McCoys took part in the most notorious American family feud in history. It started in 1863 and lasted almost 30 years. The feud is a fascinating one, where pride, family honor, vengeance, and justice combine to create a story that you’d hardly believe is real. So if you want to taste a piece of American history, Hatfield & McCoy's ‘shine is definitely for you.
4. You want to drink authentic hooch.
The recipes used to create the jars you’ll buy today are the same recipes that the patriarch of the family, Devil Anse Hatfield, created hundreds of years ago. They were passed down through the family for generations and generations. It’s as authentic and original as hooch can possible be. You can’t mass-produce tradition and authenticity.
5. You’re not sure you could handle the strong, harsh taste.
So you’ve heard that moonshine has a harsh taste. A strong kick. You’re not sure you can handle the potency. Luckily for you, our ‘shine will go down smooth whether you’re drinking it straight, chilled, or in cocktails. Plus, you can buy our moonshine mix, too. These pre-made mixes are perfect for those who are trying white lightning for the first time and are scared of its potency or those who just enjoy a fruitier tasting alcohol.
Nasty tasting ‘shine is the stuff of amateurs. It usually tastes bad when it’s made by an inexperienced moonshiner who doesn’t know how to properly make cuts or doesn’t have the greatest recipes. When you buy Hatfield & McCoy's, you don’t have to fear—we guarantee you’ll love the taste from the first sip to the last.
