DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery Channel's press release, December 2018) Today's moonshiners are masters of innovation, but their traditional way of life is on the line as the old-time legends are dying and competition from big corporations seeking to profit from the sudden popularity of "hand-made" spirits is intensifying. The brand-new season of MOONSHINERS premieres Wednesday, January 2nd at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel. This season, the surviving moonshiners must join forces to fight for their way of life, before it's gone forever. Branded "outlaws" for generations, unprecedented demand for their backwoods spirits and increased law enforcement is suddenly making it harder than ever for these masters of distilling to practice their craft in the shadows and the very culture these moonshiners stand for is on the line. Facing threats from big corporations trying to take over the market for "craft spirits" with cheap factory-made liquor, the moonshiners will use secrets from past moonshine masters, resourceful frontier engineering, and backwoods antics to keep the traditional recipes and techniques of artisanal heritage whiskey alive in the remote corners of Appalachia.
