This Moonshine Tasting Room In West Virginia Is One Hidden Speakeasy You’ll Want To Tour

Moonshine has been in the hearts (and veins!) of people for centuries. During prohibition, it was a primary means of income for some West Virginians, and a primary means of forbidden entertainment for others. Fortunately, moonshine is still around and is making a comeback in a more legal fashion than in the past. If you haven’t tried shine (lately) then you may be pleasantly surprised at how smooth the taste actually is. And in the Mountain State, there’s no better place to get (re)acquainted with moonshine than at the Hatfield & McCoy Moonshine Distillery.
