Last Straw Darker Side of the Moonshine
Last Straw // Ontario, Canada
Don DiMonte and his wife Ana Simoes started this Vaughan, Ontario micro-distillery in 2013. It took three years to work through the red tape but they finally opened their doors in 2016. While they wait for their whisky to age, other spirits such as gin and moonshine are available now. This traditional aged moonshine is made with corn and sugar double-distilled and aged for a short time in charred new American oak. It also contains some of the first spirit distilled by Last Straw distiller, Brandon DiMonte. Availability limited to Ontario.
Other WhiskeyA spirit distilled from a mash of grain(s) at less than 95% ABV, bottled at no less than 40% ABV. The product must have characteristics, taste, and aroma generally attributed to whiskey

"Caramel, butter cookie dough, icing sugar and orchard fruits such as apple, peach and pear blend into a nose that freshens up the room. The apples are colossal. The firm palate melts like butter with clean corn spirit and an outpouring of black pepper. This tight package transitions into a heart warming glow for a proper moonshine finish that warms the chest. Darker Side of the Moonshine is life affirming for the philosophical who question existence."
