The Making of Midnight Moon

Normally I don't do endorsements, but if ever I decide to give up my Maker's Mark and go the corn liquor route, this would be my spirit of choice. Based on a recipe by the patron saint of bootleggers everywhere, Junior Johnson's Midnight Moon is an 80 proof triple-distilled booster rocket in a bottle. Recently, I took my second stroll through the old train depot in Madison, where a small group of laid-back locals crank out my state's only legal moonshine - 250 gallons at a time. I refrained from imbibing that day of course, but since then have all but drained the airplane bottle that sits before me. While I wait for my speaking voice to return, do check out the above 'Made in North Carolina' and know that I haven't had this much fun since Tucker and I toured that pimento-cheese factory.

Now if you could just shove this wet washcloth down my throat, I'd appreciate it.

Dude, did you see this story? I interviewed this guy a few years ago. He refurbishes trailer houses and used to be Junior's crew chief. He is awesome!

Only an airplane bottle's worth. Why?
