What Age Is Manhattan Moonshine?


Share on Pinterest

Like the popular Hollywood movie star who will not divulge his or her age, Manhattan Moonshine guards its secret well and remains the world’s first luxury [depending on your definition for “luxury”] un-aged whiskey, best used for mixing in cocktails.

Manhattan Moonshine is not aged in barrels, which dispenses with the heavier barrel-derived oak and smoke flavors and makes it a better mixing whiskey than higher end brands. Specifically, Manhattan Moonshine is of a combination of oats, rye, spelt and malted barley – all grown in New York state – and bottled at 47.5% alcohol content [95 proof].

Manhattan Moonshine is available for $40 per 750 ml Art Deco-decorated decanter.
