About the Bourbon and the Moonshine

The Total Eclipse Kentucky Straight Bourbon, bottled at 100-proof and aged for two years, is a blend of corn, wheat, rye, and barley. This composition ensures a well-rounded flavor profile. Master Distiller AJ Jones, who hails from a lineage of distillers and bootleggers, oversees the production, distilling the whiskey in small batches. This process allows for a refined taste, with notes of baking spice and butterscotch on the nose, and flavors of orange zest and toasted oak, ending with a pecan finish.

The Total Eclipse Moonshine offers an experience designed for sipping or as a base for cocktails like the “Moonarita,” a unique take on the classic Margarita. Named the “Official Spirits of the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse” by Senator Whitney Westerfield it was inspired by a Prohibition-era family recipe distilled from equal parts corn and cane.
