Can't wait until the products hit the store shelves from the reality show "Weed Country".

I bought a couple of jars of "Popcorn Sutton's Tennessee White Whiskey", after watching his "Last Batch" video, and out of curiosity since I'd never tried moonshine. It's actually pretty good. It'll never replace my preferred Laphroaig, but it does grow on you. You can taste the corn in it.

‘Legal moonshine’ is an oxymoron. Once it’s sold legally it’s not moonshine anymore. I suppose ‘artisanal spirits’ sounds too hoity-toity and they are calling it moonshine to give it some hillbilly credibility.

I've also had Popcorn Sutton's white whiskey. Good stuff. Still doesn't quite match the true backwoods made stuff..
