About Us

I learned from the Māori in New Zealand how to make moonshine and spent over three years there perfecting the technique. Because it’s legal in New Zealand to make moonshine there’s a large amount of home distilleries and an amazing amount of knowledge to back that up.

Moonshining in New Zealand

During the time I spent in New Zealand I managed to perfect many recipes for moonshine. Here are a few I’d recommend to anyone starting out : Corn Mash Recipe , Vodka Recipe and my personal favourite Deathwish Wheat Germ Whiskey Recipe . I also learned how to build both a pot and reflux still from scratch. I’ve created E-books that walk you though the process.  I have a passion for learning and love to teach people what I’ve learned which is why I created this blog.Making Moonshine Hydrometer Proofing

Now that I’m living back in the United States I no longer make moonshine as it’s illegal here and you should understand this blog is for information purposes only. Hopefully one day the government will legalize home distilleries and we can put our knowledge to good use. To learn more about the laws surrounding moonshine and what’s required to make Moonshine legally in your state visit Home Distilling Laws section of our blog.
