Copper Run Ozark Mountain Moonshine
Copper Run // Missouri, USA
Copper Run sits in the Ozark mountains in Walnut Shade, Missouri. The site seems to have been picked for its limestone rich water. At the moment they bottle a variety of whiskey and rum. They produce their distillate from a 140-gallon, direct-fire, copper pot-still. This moonshine consists of corn, barley, and 20% wheat.
WhiteDistilled from a cereal mash bill comprised of any grain(s). Generally unaged except in the US, where it must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time. Sometimes sold as "moonshine" although that is a misnomer.
"While Copper Run doesn’t disclose how much barley they use in the mash bill, the final product conveys that they probably use a bit more than most. The nose reveals artificial vanilla, corn oil, and toasted wheat which is no big surprise. The palate initially tastes of sweet corn. However, there is a surprisingly malty mid-palate. The finish is short but crams in some vanilla and sweet spices."
