94 Proof (ABV 47%)
The first step in the making of Bondurant Brothers Moonshine is the malting of the barley. We use Thoroughbred Barley, grown in the fertile fields of the historic Northern Neck of Virginia. After our malting process, the barley malt is then ready to be ground.
Along with the barley, we also grind our Virginia grown white corn right here at the distillery. After grinding the grains, we mix them with water, sugar, and a little yeast in our 275 gal fermenters where the mash works until ready to distill.
After the mash has worked off, it is then pumped into our 550 gal pot still. Our still and process is true to how our grandfather and great uncles made moonshine in the late 1920’s, true single batch, craft spirits.
We then take our finished product and proof it down to 94 proof using the world famous Chase City mineral spring water. Our moonshine is then bottled and shipped to our loyal customers, who enjoy a true, time tested craft spirit.
Bondurant Brothers Moonshine is as versatile to drink as its history is controversial. Perfect for any occasion and/or situation where alcoholic beverages are served. Substituting our Moonshine for vodka turns ordinary cocktails into extraordinary. Recipes available on website. Whatever way you drink it, Bondurant Brother's Moonshine is a must to make any situation and/or occasion shine.
Bondurant Brothers Distillery is located in Chase City, VA, about 100 miles east of where the Bondurant Brothers started making moonshine and fruit brandy in Franklin County, VA in the late 1920’s and 1930’s. The new distillery is nestled in the old South Side Hammer Mill, originally built in 1912, a longtime fixture in the town of Chase City. The distillery uses the world famous Chase City mineral spring water in the production of all our products. All spirits are distilled in our 550 gal pot still, and condensed in our solid copper condenser, cooled with our well water. We stay true to the craft, single batch methods of days gone by.
Robert Bondurant, Head Distiller at Bondurant Brothers Distillery, is the grandson of the famous moonshiner, Jack Bondurant. Jack and his brothers, Forrest and Howard, made moonshine and fruit brandy in Franklin County Virginia in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. The 2012 motion picture, LAWLESS, was based on the exploits of the famed Bondurant brothers. Nearly ninety years and two generations later, Robert is keeping the family tradition alive. Robert produces his 94 proof moonshine and peach brandy using the same time tested techniques his grandfather did. Robert malts his own barley and grinds all the grains on site to ensure freshness and consistency and stays true to the real, old fashioned craft spirits.

At first, the moonshine has a slight, not overbearing corn nose. Initial corn flavor, not a big bite or burn, and has a nice sweet, barley hint on the backside
