“Loon Liquors Releasing Loonshine This Weekend”
by The Growler Magazine
Loon Liquors of Northfield is set to debut their first product. Nearly a year and a half after their Indiegogo fundraiser went live, their un-aged whiskey, Loonshine, will hit bars and shelves this weekend.
The spirit is made from organic wheat and barley, concentrated in a small copper pot still, and steeped for a short period on birch charcoal and toasted white oak chips, before being filtered and bottled. The 80-proof Loonshine has floral and white pear flavors, with oaky tannin and vanilla on the finish. It doesn’t taste like a whiskey (maybe more like a rum/tequila/whiskey hybrid) but it’s certainly not the raw, white lightning you might conjure when you think of moonshine.
