Making and marketing 'moonshine'

Hosted by

Not long ago, contributor Peter Gilstrap began noticing a liquor advertised as “moonshine” on liquor store shelves. He wondered: if it’s legal, how can it be called moonshine? So Gilstrap went into the backwoods of Tennessee to speak with a couple of longtime moonshiners, a local food critic, and even a maker of the newer stuff to find out the real story behind the illicit spirit.
