Sugarlands Jim Tom's Signature Moonshine Unaged Rye
Sugarlands Shine // Tennessee, USA
The Sugarlands Shine Legends Series honors legendary moonshiners of Southern Appalachia. The first offering in this series uses the classic recipe of distiller Jim Tom Hedrick's unaged rye "moonshine". This is bottled at 100-proof and sold in a mason jar.
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.
"The aroma is heavy on the rye with loads of fresh cracked pepper and savory spice. Just a touch of sweetness on the palate, but mainly there's pure rye flavors in tandem with fresh cut grass leading into a clean and balanced finish."
