St. Laurent Moonshine is a white corn whisky — our very "Québécoise" version of American Bourbon. During prohibition, bootleggers were hiding in the Appalachian hills to distill illegally "under the shining moon". The St. Laurent Moonshine alludes to these rascals who — in Kentucky as in Quebec — have kept alive the artisan distillation tradition.
Born of a fermentation on the grains and a double distillation in a Scottish type copper still, St. Laurent Moonshine reveals the raw aromas of Bas-Saint-Laurent’s corn, rye and malted barley. Whisky lovers, this is your chance to taste the distillate coming straight out of the still and appreciate the know-how of the Master Distiller without alteration.

At first, the liquid is mellow and slightly fruity, evoking grappa and plum brandy. Then, the rye spiciness teases the tongue. A note of hay reminiscent of harvest time in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region. A round and creamy finale that leaves a comforting and intoxicating warmth in its trail.
