Tim Smith Climax Moonshine BrandMoonshiner Tim Smith tells first that his long awaited moonshine will be available soon.

As a true moonshiner, Tim has been keeping it on the down low where he has been distilling his new shine.

It appears that Tim is currently making his moonshine at Limestone Branch Distillery in Lebanon, Kentucky, as shown in a photo on his official Climax Moonshine website.

After 2 successful seasons on Discovery Channel’s Moonshiners, Tim Smith has gone legal with Climax Moonshine which he is calling the “Drink of Defiance.” is the first media outlet to give you this first scoop on Tim’s moonshine brand  AND what his first flavors and expressions will be below.

His original “White Lightning” moonshine, which is a corn mash base, will be bottled at 90 proof while his first two fruit expressions will be bottled at 79 proof.

Climax Moonshine Drink of DefianceThese fruit expressions Grape and Peach Lightning are made the hard way, distilled from real fruit instead of adding fruit later.

    Can’t wait to try Tim’s brew! Not a whiskey drinker, but you gotta love Tim and the boys for their dedication and honor of tradition. Simple men not wanting to ‘get rich’, just doing what they love in an honest way without hurting anyone. I have much respect for them.
