Georgia has a long history of moonshine dating back to the 1860s. After the civil war moonshine became taxed and illegal. Some people still made it in secrecy, but the high risk associated with illegal business prevented its production from spreading. Today, with the controlled legalization of moonshine and strict law enforcement, illegal production is virtually non existent.
