The Bourbon Life

Aug 27, 2021

In this Episode of The Bourbon Life Podcast, Matt and Mark spend some time hanging out with Tim Smith, Owner of Tim Smith Spirits/Climax Moonshine and the star of the Discovery Channel’s hit series, Moonshiners.

The guys talk with Tim about his early years and his unconventional introduction into the illegal world of moonshining, his decision to go legal years ago and the uphill battle that he fought to make that transition, and the rapid-aging process that he and his team utilize to mature his Rye and Bourbon in a matter of hours as opposed to years.  

They also taste and review some of Tim’s Climax Moonshine, his Tim Smith’s Southern Reserve Wood-Fired Rye, and his Tim Smith’s Southern Reserve Wood-Fired Rye.
