Show Overview

Think the days of bootleggers, backwoods stills and ´white lightning´ are over? Not a chance! It´s a multi-million dollar industry. But perhaps more importantly to the moonshiners, it´s a tradition dating back hundreds of years, passed down to them from their forefathers. It´s part of their history and culture. While this practice is surprisingly alive and well, it´s not always legal. Moonshiners tells the story of those who brew their shine - often in the woods near their homes using camouflaged equipment - and the local authorities who try to keep them honest. Viewers will witness practices rarely, if ever, seen on television including the sacred rite of passage for a moonshiner - firing up the still for the first time. They will also meet legends, including notorious moonshiner Marvin ´Popcorn´ Sutton.
