Our Story

Moonshine has been made in New England since long before Prohibition.
It’s just been kept quiet … until now. We handcraft Onyx Moonshine in small batches using a secret recipe to give a smooth and refined take on an age-old distilling tradition. We’re proud to offer you the world’s first ultra-premium American moonshine—one that sips like a top shelf whiskey and mixes better than vodka.

Cheers! Adam + Pete
