What is it about Moonshine that fascinates people?
There is something about Moonshine that captures the imagination. Which is why moonshiners have been glamorized in movies and reality television and there are so many songs about it written by megastars like Bruno Mars and Brad Paisley. But what is it about Moonshine that fascinates people?
Come to find out Moonshine has a very long, rich and complex history. Beginning with early settlers, transitioning into old southern outlaws constantly on the run during prohibition and then becoming commercially available in a wide variety of flavors ranging from the traditional White Lightning or Mountain Dew to Apple Pie. In fact, Gatlinburg has THREE Moonshine distilleries in downtown on the strip where you can get some of the "likker".
