Moonshiner's Experience

For the True Sweet Mash Pioneer

Hard Truth Hills is home to the only distillery in the country where guests can make their own moonshine.

The Hard Truth Moonshiner’s Experience offers visitors a chance to join the centuries-long legacy of crafting moonshine in the hills and valleys of Brown County, Indiana.

Over the course of this four-hour immersive experience, guests have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make their own moonshine just like pioneer distillers of the past. In our secluded forest hideaway, ‘Shiner’s Creek, folks will spend the day cooking mash, distilling spirits, eating campfire delicacies, and bottling their own ‘shine. Side by side with our ‘Shine-Guides and Hard Truth distillers, everyone works through the process start to finish — from distilling the lo-wines to selecting flavoring for their spirits before finishing their custom bottles. Includes, per guest, two campfire cocktails, one camp meal, hands-on moonshining action, a custom souvenir bottle of the spirit distilled during the experience, and the title of Master Moonshiner.

Private bookings only, and reservations must be made at least 30 days in advance. Please contact the Hard Truth Hills Tours & Tastings Center to reserve your Moonshiner’s Experience!
