Sugarlands Shine Appalachian Apple Pie Moonshine
Appalachian Apple Pie serves up a zesty taste of fresh baked green apples between two layers of shortbread, accented with a lemon zest. The fresh snap of green apple rounds out into a quick citrus finish with a lingering caramel cushion.
Located in downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee, Sugarlands Distilling Co. opened in March 2014. It uses the same process and ingredients as the legendary backwoods stills of prohibition days, but Sugarlands is paying taxes on it. Everything from Sugarlands is small batch and pot distilled a minimum of six times. The moonshine is made from Silver Cloud, fresh Tennessee white corn and cane sugar. The pot still allows Sugarland to produce a great spirit with the perfect balance between being too thin or too heavy. Only the best ingredient, milled fresh for every batch is used.
Sugarlands has won many awards including the Platinum Medal (Best in Class) at the 2014 SIP Awards, the Double God Medal at the 2016 Fifty Best Awards as well as Silver Medals at both the 2014 Lost Angeles International Spirits Competition and the 2015 Beverage Testing Institute. These awards are important to the folks at Sugarlands Distilling Co, especially because these awards are at the consumer level and are blind taste competitions.
Sugarlands Shine is proud to join NASCAR to celebrate the authentic history of moonshiners who began manipulating their stock cars to outrun the law as they delivered their high-octane spirits throughout Appalachia. Sugarland is now the official Moonshine of NASCAR.
I had a friend who used to rave about apple pie moonshine and I finally decided to try it when I saw it on the site. You get hit by alcohol vapors the second you open this. It is, for me, too potent. Once you get past the first hit of fumes, it honestly smells like Southern Comfort. To me, it tastes a bit like that too. When taken straight up, you get the warming notes of apple pie spices without anything, especially cinnamon, overpowering the experience. I mostly get a caramel taste, though, that keeps SoCo in mind. No apple flavor. Mixed with ginger ale to mellow the alcohol or treated like I do SoCo (which is an alcohol I love), this is a good drink, but it isn't what I expected. Because I wanted APPLE pie. Apple is apparently a very hard flavor to bring out in alcohol because I've tried a few now and seldom get the apple. As for the delivery, it was well packaged to make it safely from CA to WV and easily tracked with the FedEx app.
