90 Proof (45% ABV)
This isn’t your ordinary whiskey. It’s a century-old recipe, combined with a proprietary aging process that drives intense Appalachian White Oak flavor into the liquid. The result is an imparting amber color and revolutionary flavor.
So break the rules a little, let go, and Climax this moment with a drink of unpredictableand 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.
