Summer is coming and the porch is callin’. Now all you need is the perfect drink in your hand to enjoy the long lazy days we have all been looking forward to. Luckily we have the perfect recipe for your next favorite summer drink-peach tea moonshine.
One of our favorite things about moonshine is the fact that it is so versatile. While many may still see moonshine as a grain alcohol that is pretty hard to swallow, this could be further from the truth.
What is Moonshine?
Moonshine really refers to any spirit that is made illicitly. In fact, the name moonshine refers to the fact that once making your own spirits was outlawed in the United States, many were forced to run their stills by the light of the moon.
Today the legality of making your own spirits varies from country to country and even state to state.
However, the craft of making moonshine is not limited to white lightning. In fact, there are countless recipes that not only allow you to make many different types of spirits, but also to flavor your spirits.
This means that instead of spending hundreds of dollars to purchase speciality liquors in stores, you can make them at home for a fraction of the price. This not only saves you money, but also allows you to get more creative behind the bar. Imagine the cocktails you could create if you were able to fully unleash your creativity!
The Right Equipment for the Job
While many moonshiners want a traditional still to create speciality blended whiskeys, others prefer the simple approach. For those who want to put their efforts and energies into creating flavored cocktails, we suggest a simpler approach.
The Mist 1 Gallon Air Still is our easiest to use still. It is about the same size as your kitchen kettle and just as easy to use.
Its plug and play design means that with just the press of a button you can distill delicious spirits in the comfort of your own home.
Not only is it easy to distill spirits with the Mist, it also does not require any water. This makes the Mist the perfect option for the cottage, trailer, boat, or for anyone who has limited access to water.
