National Moonshine Day

Each year on the first Thursday of June, we celebrate our favorite day: National Moonshine Day. This beautiful holiday falls on June 2 this year, and we know how we’re going to celebrate – with lots and lots of moonshine.


Now, don’t get us wrong, we probably would have indulged our fair share back in the day, but as moonshine is entirely legal today, we can celebrate knowing that we’re not breaking any laws. Of course, this leads us to our always important law, never drink and drive. With that being said, these tips and celebratory suggestions are only for those who are sipping at home or have a designated driver with them. 


Our Dumplin Creek moonshine is as good as it comes – trust us, we’ve tested everything out there. Regardless of your mood or the season, the perfect shot of ‘shine is just a bottle away. But, as we’re celebrating in the summery heat of June, we recommend something a little lighter on the palate and leaning towards the fruity side. Of course, this is just our suggestion; feel free to try whatever you prefer, but we recommend Red Haven Peach, Toasted Mango, Little River Lemon, or Blackberry Bramble. These fruity flavors taste like summer with a boozy punch to help you enjoy. 


We often throw back a shot of ‘shine, you know, to make sure that it’s coming out the right way at the distillery. But, we know that not everyone can handle the burn of moonshine on its own. So, depending on the flavor you select, there are different mixers we would recommend. If you choose peach or mango, we suggest adding a few shots to your glass of sweet tea. It adds a unique flavor, and depending on your ratio, you may not even taste the alcohol. If you’re going with our lemon flavor, just add it to more lemonade! It enhances the tang in the best way. And if you’re in the blackberry mood, either add some ginger ale or, our personal favorite, mix up a quick milkshake! This takes a little longer to prepare, but trust us, the boozy feel of a blackberry pie in a drinkable form is something everyone must try before they die. 

Regardless of how you choose to celebrate this wonderful day, as long as you have moonshine, we think you’re doing fine. If you need to restock on the best flavors, stop by our Kodak, TN distillery. And if you’re looking for new flavors to test out, don’t forget that we offer free tastings and $5 cocktails every day of the week. To get a head start before you head in, check out our offerings here. Happy Moonshine Day!
