LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Locally made moonshine will soon be available for purchase in stores and restaurants around Las Vegas!

The Underground at The Mob Museum is making its house-distilled, corn-mash original Moonshine available for off-premise sales in Nevada in collaboration with distributor Johnson Brothers.

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.
