Blackberries are in peak season during the Summer and that is why this Blackberry Sunset, featuring Sugarlands Blackberry Moonshine, is the perfect cocktail to fend off those hot Summer nights!
I know I caught your attention when I mentioned cocktail and moonshine in the same sentence! I get it, that normally doesn’t go hand in hand, but the moonshine that Sugarlands distills isn’t your typical moonshine. Granted, years ago “white lightening” was 100% pure and wasn’t so “easily” available as it is now. Things are all lot different now and the moonshine now isn’t nothing like what used to be around.
The five distillers at Sugarlands, together with their backgrounds in distilling and their passion for their craft, have created quite a variety of unique flavors for your enjoyment!
