What is the Difference Between Vodka, Moonshine and Everclear?
If you are wondering what the difference between moonshine recipes, everclear recipes, and vodka recipes is you are not alone.
Everclear and moonshine are from the same unaged spirits family. The difference is Everclear is a commercially made spirit and moonshine is made illicitly.
Vodka is also an unaged spirit which is known for its neutral taste. You can make vodka at home (so it is considered moonshine) and when doing multiple distillations or using a column still, like The Standard, you can get a neutral tasting spirit. However, vodka does not have as high of an ABV (alcohol by volume) as moonshine.
