The Cherokee considered corn to be the staff of life, and there’s literally tons of life in America. Almost all of the American corn comes from the vast plains of the Midwest, which is cut in half by the Mississippi River. What used to be the food of the nation is now mostly processed into animal feed and Spirits. Mostly Bourbon, but sometimes - Moonshine.
The sailing artists collected 42 different varieties of corn in ten states along the River. They took samples for science, and dedicated the rest to become Southwind Moonshine.
