Visit Hocking Hills Moonshine
Hocking Hills Moonshine was started in the fall of 2015 and is a family-owned and operated moonshine distillery. The St. Clair family took on the challenge to turn back the clock to the time of prohibition and produce corn liquor.
Hocking Hills Moonshine offers flavors that are 45-proof. If that is not strong enough you can get their 120-proof.
A little history, the term moonshine has been around since the 15th century. It wasn’t until the 18th century in England that it was referred to as a liquor. As for the United States, moonshine seemed to get its start in Pennsylvania.

This distillery is a museum of sorts. It has several original copper pot stills and many other era-specific items that you can view.

Tried 4 of the moonshines. The flavored ones are a bit sweet for me, but I really liked the bourbon! The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. Nice open space with some historical memorabilia. Also, gave the kids lollipops which was a nice surprise!Marci P (Yelp)
