A celebration celebrating National Moonshine Day should begin with a little history. On this day, back in 1919, President Woodrow Wilson designated the first Sunday in May as National Moonshine Day. On that day, every citizen of the United States was required by law to drink alcohol free glass of white wine or cider with hot Kentucky ale (known at that time as whiskey). Although the idea of nationalizing the manufacture of moonshine was shot down by prohibitionists at the time, the day was celebrated with great gusto by millions of Americans.
Today, National Moonshine Day is just one of many commemorations of the country’s rich history. CIDER (Cider, Gin, Etch, Tincture of Malt) are considered the national drink of United States. Although the name sounds foreign, don’t be surprised to find that nearly half of all American drinkers of alcoholic beverages consider Cider a form of spirits. Many people also enjoy a nice tall glass of mountain dew on National Moonshine Day.
