Meet the Maker: George Smith and moonshine legend, Buck Nance come down the hill from North Wilkesboro and treats Tim and Jordan with some fantastic moonshine. Not only do we have the “white lightning” but the strawberry, blueberry and black cherry flavors, all available in your local ABC stores and some new stuff, apple pie and espresso flavors that will be soon. Great guys and great stuff.
