8th Annual “12 Drinks of Christmas”, Day 8! Getting a Moonshine Buzz with Tasty Sips from Manhattan Moonshine! #recipes

I have this fascination with moonshine. Not the stuff that’s done off the books in various parts of the country. That’s a bit too harsh for me. The moonshine I am talking about is the version that’s been through a great production process as seen in the states of Massachusetts or New York and others that are in process of distillation.


Manhattan Moonshine is amazing! It’s smooth and the crystal clear nature of this spirit makes it extremely versatile. I love the spice with the vanilla undertones that comes out. (I managed to snag 2 mini bottles of the Manhattan Moonshine to try! I ran out before I was able to do more than sip once and create a couple of cocktails to be shared.)

Manhattan Moonshine is a super-premium, Prohibition style, Northern Moonshine that has been crafted to be the world’s first luxury Un-Aged Whiskey. By using a unique blend of the finest New York Grains, we have created a wonderful, complex Whiskey that does not need any aging to deliver its exceptional flavor. Combining innovative, modern production methods with sophisticated, vintage packaging inspired by the American Prohibition era’s Art Deco style and exquisite parties, Manhattan Moonshine is the liquid embodiment of a bygone era of American elegance.


To create Manhattan Moonshine, we start with a blend of locally grown New York grains that is primarily made up of oats, for their honey and baking-spice flavor, and rye, for its warm vanilla and spicy taste. We distill our Whiskey in small batches in a handmade Christian Carl pot still with only one activated plate, allowing us to preserve the natural grain flavors and subtle aromatics of the Whiskey, creating the boldest yet smoothest flavor possible. Finally, once Manhattan Moonshine has been distilled, it is immediately bottled without chill-filtering, barrel-aging, or blending, so as not to alter the wonderful flavor that we have carefully crafted.
