Coulter & Payne Farm Distillery’s 101 Uses for Moonshine

Treat yourself to a tongue-in-cheek—but very practical—glimpse into the world of moonshine, from its history and American heritage to its uses and creation today. These 101 ways to interact with moonshine are wide-ranging and include practical housekeeping hints (glass cleaner, anyone?), medicinal uses, recipes, and more.

Coulter & Payne is a farm-to-bottle distillery—that is, it not only makes spirits, but also grows its own ingredients. Dozens of photos offer a glimpse into the daily world of this small craft producer’s operations on the farm as they bring moonshine, vodka, and bourbon to America.

In these pages you’ll enjoy learning about moonshine’s benefits and potential applications, and understanding what it means to produce a farm-to-bottle, artisanal distilled spirit.

This great resource for adventurous foodies, homesteaders, and home distillers will bring whiskey out of the backwoods for the rest of us to enjoy.
