90 Proof (45% ABV)
Tim Smith, Star of the Discovery Channel series “Moonshiners,” shares his family recipe with the world.
“We’ve been doing what we love for generations… even when forced to do it on the wrong side of the law, we’ve never stopped. It’s in our roots, engraved in our soul – it’s our family’s story.
Our Whiskey is crafted mountain deep, in the light of the moon, shared down by word of mouth, generation to generation, from Granddad, to Dad, to me.”
So break the rules a little, let go, and Climax this moment with a drink of unpredictable and a taste of unexpected.
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.
