  1. Dear Tim Smith, you’re my favorite moonshiner since you’re interested in how our forefathers made it. I wish I could join you on your quest to learn how they did it. Would there be any way you could send me a bottle of Climax Moonshine? I’m 57 & it’s legal in Louisiana. If not, I understand. But I sure would love to taste it.
