Let’s be clear, making liquor at home without a licensed still is illegal in the United States, but that’s how many of today’s artisanal whiskey makers began. (The authors’ own stills are fully licensed, and the products thereof much appreciated around the country). The wry sense of humor they display in writing about rural moonshine’s roots and in singling out some of the country’s most important large and craft producers extends to their instructions for setting up your own rig. Yet the vital details are all here, carefully explained, down to a floor-plan for the craft distillery you dream of someday opening.
