While not made under the light of the moon, Junction 56 moonshine is crafted following the methods of traditional moonshiners. A 100% Canadian corn base ensures the flavour profile will match that of traditional moonshine. The application of modern distilling techniques complements this to create a light and well balanced spirit. Distilled like a whiskey product but not aged, this is a complex but smooth spirit.
We take pride in ensuring that all of our ingredients are locally grown. We work with local farmers to obtain the best Ontario produced corn and wheat to use in our exceptional sprits.
All of our products are hand crafted at our distillery. We start by milling the corn or wheat onsite to a consistency we feel will allow for the best mash process to occur. We heat that product to pull the starches from the sugars which we allow to ferment for several days. The mash is then distilled to create the spirit. The distillation process is unique based on the spirit we are creating and the flavour profile we are targeting.
We feel that our craft distillation process allows us to focus on creating a consistent and unique spirit that can be enjoyed in traditional cocktails while also allowing for the flavours to tempt our consumers to create new and innovative drinks.
