Silver Medal Winner (2019) The Fifty Best
Old KT Shine is a traditional sugar wash based moonshine that is fermented over local Texas corn, local Katy rice, and locally sourced apples. It is then proofed down with local Katy, Texas water. The local rice mellows out the harshness of the moonshine and provides a flavor that is unique to moonshine and unique to Katy, Texas. Old KT Shine is great to drink on the rocks or with your favorite mixer. Come and enjoy the very best legal moonshine that Katy has to offer.
