Moonshine Anyone?

Saw this at Patti's Settlement in Grand Rivers Kentucky...

Moonshine is a strong alcoholic drink made by distilling fermented mixtures of grains or mash. Also sometimes called corn liquor, rotgut or white lightning, moonshine has a long and colorful history in North America. Traditionally, it has been made illegally by clandestine operations, hence the name that reflects the secretive, dark-of-night activity. Today moonshine is still illegal in most places, unless a special permit is obtained. The device used to make moonshine is called a still and dates back thousands of years.
