You know Tim Smith from Discovery Channel’s hit TV show Moonshiners. If you’re like us and love the show, you know Tim has been on a mission to get out of the hills making moonshine illegally and into his own legal moonshine making operation. Well, Tim’s done it! The Tim Smith moonshine Climax Moonshine is here! While you can’t yet buy Tim Smith Climax Moonshine everywhere, you can always get started on being the next Tim Smith and make your own moonshine at home!
UPDATE!: Lookin’ to buy Tim Smith Moonshine Climax online? Makin’ Moonshine has found it! CLICK HERE TO BUY Tim Smith Moonshine right now!
Tim Smith recently signed a deal with Prost Beverage Company to bring the Tim Smith moonshine Climax Moonshine to the growing legal moonshine market. You can really tell there’s a lot of Tim Smith the man going into every bottle of the Tim Smith moonshine Climax Moonshine. Tim Smith’s Climax Moonshine takes its name from Tim’s hometown of Climax, Virginia. Tim’s dog “Camo” is proudly displayed on every label.
Interviews with Tim Smith and the Climax Moonshine website make it clear that Tim Smith’s moonshine isn’t just some attempt to capitalize on his name. The Climax Moonshine is pot-distilled from the original Tim Smith family recipe. Tim has stated his Climax Moonshine is different than other legal moonshine on the market, and that you can taste that difference in every bottle. Tim is clearly focused on the craft of distilling, making each batch by hand in small batches. Interesting, though, it appears from a picture at the Climax Moonshine website that Tim is making the moonshine at Limestone Branch Distillery in Lebanon, Kentucky rather than in Virginia.
Tim Smith’s Original Recipe Climax Moonshine is distilled from corn, rye and barley to 90 proof. The website description says the Original Recipe is clean and natural tasting with a subtle sweetness. The Original Recipe retails for around $24.99-$29.99 for a 750 ml. bottle.
In addition to the Original Recipe Tim Smith moonshine, Climax Moonshine has plans to also bring two flavored moonshines to market. The website descriptions for Tim Smith’s Grape Lightning and Peach Lightning sound delicious. Both flavored Tim Smith moonshine varieties will be 79 proof and will be distilled the right way – from real fruit – rather than just adding fruit to regular white lightning to infuse the whiskey after its distilled. The Grape Lighting description states “This ain’t no fruit-filled jar of juice. It’s distilled from real grapes for a delicious aroma and subtle hints of Concord grape” and for Peach Lightning “No shortcuts here. Tim’s delicious peach recipe is distilled from real peaches. It’s like biting into a fresh peach.” It ain’t no apple pie moonshine, but that sounds good. It’ll be interesting to see how these fruit-intensive moonshines are priced compared to the Original Recipe.
Tim Smith moonshine is available now in liquor stores, restaurants, and bars throughout the Southeast. Additional distribution online and across the nation is not far away and you can keep track of availability RIGHT HERE. As the Climax Moonshine website says “Climax Moonshine is wanted in all 50 states. But because Tim takes his time to hand craft Climax Moonshine, right now it’s available in limited quantity. Rest assured, Tim’s making it as quickly as he can. Check back here to find a stash near you.”
BourbonBlog.com has a great interview with Tim Smith himself that you should check out here for more information on the Tim Smith moonshine and brand.
So how is it? If you’ve gotten your hands on some Tim Smith Climax Moonshine, let us hear from you here in the comments.

StillCraft Copper & Steelworks is a manufacturer of high quality copper moonshine stills and stainless steel moonshine stills based in the U.S. in McHenry, Illinois. StillCraft has been manufacturing some of the best moonshine stills for sale since 2012. All StillCraft moonshine stills are professionally designed and fabricated in ISO facilities and StillCraft stands behind its products with a full 1 year warranty. As you’ll see, their work is incredible.
StillCraft produces the equipment the “big boys” use. You need an $80,000 200 Gallon Distillation System? StillCraft’s got you covered. Lookin’ for a $60,000 100 Gallon Distillation System that’s as beautiful as it is functional? No problem. Totally custom copper or stainless steel moonshine still from 10 Gallons and up? StillCraft will work with you to knock it out of the park!
What’s great is that StillCraft takes all that skill and knowledge they’ve earned putting together the big rigs for the big boys and makes the perfect home distilling kits for the home distiller. One of StillCraft’s most popular moonshine stills for sale is its 10 Gallon Mini-System. StillCraft designed this system with features you normally only seen on larger systems. The result is an excellent moonshine still, and a fun system for everyone from the beginning home distiller for home distilling to an old moonshiner to play with.
StillCraft Original Design Reflux Distillation System for Home Distilling
But what you really need to check out with StillCraft is their new model – the StillCraft Original Design Reflux Distillation System. This thing is incredible. StillCraft offers the new design in 26 Gallon and 55 Gallon capacities. Here’s the info direct from StillCraft:
The 26 Gallon Enhanced System is our most popular and never fails to impress even the most advanced users. We have designed the tank with features typically seen on larger units which provides the ability to sustain consistent quality in a small footprint. Coupled with the newly designed 4″ copper column this package will exceed your expectations.
A modular design enables the addition of components to fully round out your system. Add a 4″ Copper Pot Still Head for situations where reflux is not desirable, a 2 Plate Add-on to increase purity, or a Gin Basket to introduce flavors.
The 55 Gallon model is an economic alternative to the copper systems without sacrificing quality or capacity. This system has been designed with an insulated stainless tank loaded with features and includes the NEW Patent Pending 4″ Copper Reflux Column.
Awesome! The StillCraft Original Design Reflux Distillation System columns feature precision welding (not soldered), temp gauge, multiple thermo-probe ports, etc. The tanks feature 304 stainless steel, sight glass, and all the ports you need.
Maybe most importantly, this awesome moonshine still features StillCraft’s original, patent pending design that’s tested to 92% (you can even get that as high as 95% with the 2 plate add-on)!!! And, of course, it’s got the StillCraft 1 year warranty. Do yourself a favor and check these things out immediately!
StillCraft Milk Can Reflux Distillers for Home Distilling

Makin’ Moonshine Bottom Line:
StillCraft Copper & Steelworks is a truly professional, commercial-level designer and manufacturer of incredible, well-crafted copper moonshine stills and stainless steel moonshine stills. StillCraft leans hard on its years of commercial moonshine still design and fabrication in bringing its high quality stills for home distilling to the home distiller. With StillCraft, you truly get what you pay for. Check out all StillCraft’s moonshine stills for sale today.
The Copper Still Company is a retailer of high-quality copper pot moonshine stills and split-top moonshine stills. Based out of Seattle, Washington, The Copper Still Company offers high quality moonshine stills for sale that are manufactured by skilled craftsmen in Portugal. The company began producing its moonshine stills out of a passion for distilling and to encourage others to learn about distilling and begin distilling on their own. The Copper Still Company team has over 20 years of combined experience in brewing and distilling and offers everything you’re going to need to purchase a moonshine still.
The Copper Still Company’s use of copper in their moonshine stills helps provide good heating and cooling transference. The copper serves to adsorb sulfur compounds and yeast resulting in a sweeter distillate. The use of copper in the stills also inhibits water-borne microorganisms, improves the aroma of the distillate, and prevents formation of ethyl carbamate, a toxin.
All of The Copper Still Company’s moonshine stills are constructed of 20 gauge sheet copper, providing superior heat distribution. All their stills also include a built-in thermometer. The alembic pot still is assembled using brass solder rather than any riveting. All other joints on the still use either brass, copper or tin lead-free solder.
The Copper Still Company offers both pot stills and split-top moonshine stills for sale. The pot stills are available in four sizes: 1 Gallon, 2.5 Gallon, 5 Gallon, and 10 Gallon. Pot stills are the backbone of traditional distilling practices, and are excellent for home use.
The split-top column moonshine stills are available in three sizes: 1 Gallon, 2.5 Gallon, and 5 Gallon. The split-top column stills allows for a purer distillate as the batch is in the column rather than the pot, as well as allowing the distiller to remove the column, empty the old batch and add a new batch without having to replace and reheat the water.
According to The Copper Still Company, their 1 Gallon Copper Moonshine Still requires the least amount of space to set up, but also products the least amount of moonshine because of it’s small size. Their 2.5 gallon still is a step up in all ways. A higher production amount, but the still requires a small amount of space to set up.
The 5 Gallon Moonshine Still is by far The Copper Still Company’s most popular unit. The 5 gallon is nice compromise between portability, production amount, and set up size. The Copper Still Company’s advice is that if you’re not sure which size to go with, the 5 gallon moonshine still is your best choice.
The Copper Still Company offers free shipping and a 60-day, “No Hassle, No Worries”, 110% money-back guarantee on their stills. Now that’s standing behind your product! Keep in mind that their stills are shipped International Priority from their manufacturer in Europe, which means you’ll typically need to allow a one to two week shipping time. But here’s what you’ll be looking at the day that your new moonshine still arrives:
