We still follow the same ‘Sippin Hooch’ recipe, but we’ve infused our Rocky Mountain moonshine with an essence orange to arouse your senses and refresh your taste buds. Orange Burst Moonshine delivers the perfect amount of natural orange flavor. Not overpowering, but just enough to allow the aromatic flavor to soothe your senses with no 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.
Sweet orange, without the sugary aftertaste.
