Moonshine, historically, has referred to an illegal Spirit and I definitely people still associate this practice with what’s being called Moonshine now. While it is still illegal for private citizens to distill Spirits for retail purposes, legitimate distillers can produce and sell Moonshine.
Smartass corner
Moonshine isn't aged. In fact, it's taken right out of the still in its crystal clear form clocking in anywhere between 150 to 170 proof. That's one hunk of burning liquid love.
XXX Found On Bottles Was A Code. Moonshiners used to label their jugs with a series of X’s to indicate the strength of the brew inside. If you were fortunate enough to get your hands on a batch marked XXX, you know that it had been distilled three times, so it was bound to be good stuff.
The NASCAR connection. If your car wasn't fast enough to outrun cops while on a midnight run, bootleggers the 1920s were doomed. So, they modified their cars and eventually got the idea of racing each other on a track. Hence, stock car racing was born.
