Lee’s Liquor will carry the moonshine in both 750-mL and 50-mL quantities at all 19 of its stores beginning Oct. 18. Other retailers, bars and restaurants will be announced soon.
Made from a single ingredient - 100% yellow corn - The Mob Museum’s Moonshine uses no additional sugar in the distillation. The museum says this process prevents harsh flavors from developing, creating the highest-quality, smoothest spirit possible.

Bottled at 50-percent ABV, the Moonshine carries distinctively appealing notes of buttery, sweet popcorn.
The Museum’s Moonshine is crafted in The Underground in a custom-made artisan copper-pot still situated in the distillery. The system distills 100% corn-mash Moonshine, which is available at the speakeasy bar and for sale in The Underground.
Visitors looking to learn more about the distilling process and for an authentic 1920s experience can visit The Underground speakeasy.
In addition to house-distilled moonshine, the bar also serves house-brewed craft beer as well as tempting Prohibition-era inspired cocktails, seasonal blends of moonshine, wines by the glass and non-alcoholic drinks.
The speakeasy offers food, happy hour and free live jazz.
