Prost Beverage Co. LLC released Tim Smith’s Climax Moonshine in Georgia and South Carolina. As the star of the Discovery Channel’s “Moonshiners” reality series, Smith has made moonshine illegally for years and now is releasing his product to the market legally. Climax Moonshine is pot-distilled from an original family recipe using corn, rye and barley malt mash, resulting in a 90-proof spirit. A 750-ml bottle of Climax Moonshine retails for approximately $29.99. Soon, the company will add Grape Lightning and Peach Lightning flavored moonshines, which are distilled from real fruit instead of adding fruit later like in other moonshines, it says. Both spirits will be 79 proof and come packaged in 375-ml bottles.
