The LBL ‘Most Wanted’ Moonshine produced by Silver Trail has been awarded the Best Moonshine award from SIP this year.

Having only opened in 2011, it’s an achievement owner Spencer Balentine is particularly proud of, especially as the white unaged spirit has been made to a recipe dating back to that of his great uncle in 1947.

But what really makes this distillery unique, is that fact Balentine is forbidden to sell liquor from the premises, due to county laws.

However he told local press recently that he hoped to fill in the “not being able to taste and not being able to sell with a little extra history and a little extra authenticity”.

Silver Trail Distillery may soon also offer an apple pie moonshine called Apple Cin.
