Junior Johnson’s Midnight Moon Moonshine: Now With Less Police Chases

Junior Johnson’s family made moonshine in North Carolina, and by the time he was 14, he was frequently “running shine” around the state, dodging cops with gutsy “bootleg turns” in his car. That boldness behind the wheel eventually led to a Hall of Fame NASCAR career, and now it’s all come full circle with Junior Johnson’s Midnight Moon Moonshine. It’s made from American corn, hand-crafted in small batches and born in a copper still, with a taste that’s said to be smooth and clean. It’s moonshine without the police chases. We’re not sure if that’s a good or bad thing though.
