Authentic moonshine recipes can be found on still manufacturers' web pages and small specialty sites dedicated to the distilling of alcohol in big quantities. While moonshine is illegal as it is typically sold without tax, there are many "legal moonshines," whose production, sale and alcohol content are strictly regulated according to state laws.
A trend in the market sparked a renewed interest in moonshine; bars and bartenders began creating drinks using flavored moonshine as an ingredient. With the new interest, companies began to create specialty moonshines for sale to the public, effectively working within the law to provide quality grain alcohol. Craft distilleries are rising in number at a rate of 30 percent each year, as reported by Southern Living.
