Original  MOONSHINE from STILLHOUSE Distillery Culpeper, Virginia The Stillhouse Distillery of Culpeper Virginia tells the new clear whiskey hitting the market in the US this Fall. Original MOONSHINE is a versatile new spirit, enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a variety of mixed cocktails, including these holiday cocktails we are including below. Original MOONSHINE is 80 proof, all-natural, gluten-free, charcoal-filtered and distilled four times in a Prohibition-era copper pot still. This is the same authentic process that has been passed down discreetly for hundreds of years.

a cinnamon stick and stir well.

    Some great recipes here! I will definite try some of them. We’re in Orange, which is just across the river from Culpeper–I am ashamed to say that I am unfamiliar with Stillhouse Distillery, but will now make it a point to stop in there soon!
