Heritage from Tim's moonshining days, and where he was born and raised in Climax VA, has led him down the path to introduce his very own original southern style whiskey flavors.
Golden amber in appearance. Notes of spicy toasted American oak give way to the gentle warm finish of sweet rye and caramel.
A moonshiner from Climax, VA, Tim Smith doesn’t like being told what he can or can’t do. So when people said he’d never go legit, he did it anyways. Despite his general disregard for authority, Tim’s become quite an authority himself. He knows what good, pure and strong should taste like. He may be legit, but make no mistake – Tim Smith and his Climax Moonshine are the real deal.
At any given moment you will find Tim’s dog Camo by his side. She has been Tim’s sidekick and ever present companion since his days in the backwoods of Virginia where she stood watch while he perfected his recipe for his world famous moonshine.
Camo is a unique breed of dog. She is a Catahoula Leopard dog, from Louisiana. Camo loves riding the 4 wheeler on her off time. Her unique color makes her perfect for hiding in the woods. Camo likes representing (her daddys) Tim Smith Climax Moonshine.
Our operation at Belmont Farm Distillery is family owned and operated. It is with great pride that our family at Belmont Farm has chosen to preserve a national tradition of copper pot still fresh whiskey in both our Virginia Lightning Corn Whiskey and our Kopper Kettle Virginia Whiskey.
Sweet corn and mild rye blend with smoky, caramelized oak. It finishes with earthy, nutty notes.
