Just in time for the Winter Solstice, Long Island Spirits of Baiting Hollow introduces Pine Barrens Sunrise Wildfire Moon, dubbed its “first luxury moonshine.” Sunrise Wildfire Moon is a crystal clear, 100-percent malted barley light whiskey.
The recent trend towards craft moonshine–often dubbed white lightning–has served up some arresting concoctions. But, Long Island Spirits promises a more subtle sip that evokes the toasty warmth of a bonfire, with malty sweetness and hints of cinnamon, apple and maple. Sunrise Wildfire Moon joins the Pine Barrens Whisky line launched in 2012 and is available through the Long Island Spirits distillery shop at 2182 Sound Avenue in Baiting Hollow.
A perfect pour when you’re cutting that yule log on the darkest day of the year.
