The “Overproof” Ozark Mountain Moonshine

WALNUT SHADE, Missouri, Jan. 18, 2014 – Copper Run Distillery takes whiskey making to the next level. Following the success of the “Ozark Mountain Moonshine”, Copper Run Distillery is happy to present its new offering of white whiskey.


The “Overproof” Ozark Mountain Moonshine!

Copper Run has created a new experience in the white whiskey category. This 120 proof white whiskey is distilled and blended from separate batches of corn, wheat and barley proudly joins the existing Ozark Mountain Moonshine (Standard Proof).


Appearance: Crystal clear, white whiskey
Aroma: Open and inviting offering of fruity grain.
Flavor: Sweet buttery corn, toasted wheat, with caramelized barley.
Body: Full and smooth, mid tongue heat with lots of curves.
Finish: Clean and rich granola, honey, cinnamon, liquorice…

Overall: A Bold whiskey experience that draws you in and takes you on a journey! Beginning with clean aromatics, moving into fresh grain flavor, growing into tingling warmth and richness that eventually fades leaving a mysterious glow.

Product Details: Size: 375ml | Strength: 60% alc/vol. (120 proof)

Most commercial spirits produced today are so rectified that they have a relentless blandness but this is far from the case with the “Overproof” Ozark Mountain Moonshine.

      Hi Sandra,

      We will be releasing our white rum in the next week or two. We will be making aged rum again as well, but no official date on that. Please keep following our website and Facebook pages to stay updated on new (and recurring!) products.

    Took the tour. Enjoyed the company of the young ladies, hostess and marketing person. She had just came back. Tasted the White Rum, Cinnamon Whiskey, and Cherry Pie Moonshine. Needless to say, we brought two infusion kits home with us + glasses and a flask. We will be back next year. Thanks.
