Our original “Sippin’ Hooch,” born in the 19870s in the heart of Colorado, now comes with a splash of citrus flavor. Our Citrus Mystic Moonshine is perfectly light and refreshing, no overpowering flavors or sugary aftertaste.
Prohibition-Era to WWII- In the late 1800s, a master brewer from Bavaria, came to Colorado. He spent his evenings making beverages to soothe the hard working man’s soul. Soon, his “sippin hooch” was a hit…until the start of prohibition. But you can’t keep a great moonshiner down! No one will confirm it, but chances are his small batch distilling operation simply moved a little farther into the woods.
Around the same time, in another part of Colorado – Cripple Creek – another gentleman turned to moonshining after losing his job in the mines at the end of the Great Depression. This turned into a family business. His son put heavy springs on their Model A, souped up the engine, and ran shine down the steep mountain roads.
Present Day- In early 2004, we began reviving the family tradition once again and set up shop in Larkspur, CO, and this time we kept everything on the right side of the law.
