and a lot of good whiskey.
When you’re moving a trunk full of illegal whiskey at night, the first and only rule is simple: don’t get caught. And in order to do that you have to be the fastest runner on the road.
Hailing from the days of Prohibition in the USA, the Moonshine Runners were an essential part of the illegal alcohol market that flourished in large cities, and gave birth to gangsters like Al Capone. In order to get the liquor from the backwoods distilleries where it was made into the underground bars, someone had to move it and avoid being caught by the vigilant police. Only the boldest racers with the fastest cars could pull it off. And the Moonshine Runners whiskey range is our tribute to these brave and daring men.
Every whiskey in the Moonshine Runners series is different and full of character. Like the cars used by smugglers were uniquely tuned and rebuilt to make them faster, so are the whiskeys in this family, each bringing a character and flavor of its own. Based on genuine Prohibition-era recipes, these whiskeys are the exact kind of liquor you would get in an underground speakeasy during the 1920’s in the USA. For some they might be too intense, but that’s the actual taste of whiskey like it used to be back in the day. And it might grow on you. Just like love for horsepower and speed.
The Moonshine Runners

Moonshine Runners is a whiskey series dedicated to the days of Prohibition, underground pubs, crime lords, backwoods distilleries, and fearless smugglers. In order to get the liquor from the production sites, usually located in the countryside or across the border in Canada, to the consumers in the big cities, the mobsters employed fearless drivers with the fastest cars around to outrun the police. And because they usually did their runs at night, they were called Moonshine Runners.
Some say that the entire culture of car tuning and modification stems from these bold drivers, who used to tweak their cars in order to get the most out of them and avoid being caught. Whether true or not, the Moonshine Runners whiskey series is as bold and daring as the people that inspired it. Comprised of classic Prohibition-era recipes, each whiskey in this range is individual, unique, and full of flavor. And there’s definitely something that a true whiskey lover will appreciate.
