Manhattan Moonshine was developed by William and James Kehler and distilled under the direction of Ian Smiley, author of "Making Pure Corn Whiskey: A Professional Guide For Amateur And Micro Distillers". The idea was to produce an un-aged whiskey with a sophistication to match the swank speakeasies of the Prohibition era, rather than recall the association of backwoods ruggedness and car chases. That's right - luxury white dog (dispatch from the dept. of It Was Bound To Happen.) Oats and rye are the primary grains of the NY state-grown mash-bill. Packaged in a cut glass art-deco style bottle.

Tasting Notes

"What people tend to forget with this sort of product is that it's essentially vodka made with whiskey grains. And that's exactly what this tastes like - the sweetness of oatmeal, the spiciness of rye, the astringent finish of "ultra premium vodka." And it's got a nice looking bottle."
