“Moonshine”: a new hot trend or just a quick income source?
The New York Times last week ran an article on “white dog” (or moonshine, or unaged whiskey, whatever you want to call it). Have a look here.
American distillers–mostly small artisan distillers, but also established distillers like Buffalo Trace–are selling it. And it seems to be getting some traction.
Is this just a curiosity that new, small distillers are taking advantage of to help pay the bills until the rest of their whiskey ages, or is the beginning of a new trend?
What do you think? And give your reasons why.
