Sense Designs Melbourne Moonshine Distillery’s New High-End Hooch

melbourne-moonshine-1-small_0Boutique white lightning distiller Melbourne Moonshine has launched its inaugural liquor offering, Sour Mash Shine.

Inspired by the moon and those fabulous copper stills (and fuelled by a little moonshine) the Sense team designed the unique bottle and packaging, including the label and packing boxes to transport the precious liquid.

A new take on the Southern tradition of moonshine distilling, Melbourne Moonshine is a deliciously warm and smooth spirit that packs a punch harder than any Appalachian backyard boxer.

The drop, distilled in South Melbourne, is imbued with the sleeves-up hard work of its owners in every aspect of its creation, from turning corn mash to booze via hand-beaten copper stills to slinging their wares at some of Melbourne’s most discerning venues and retailers.

melbourne-moonshine-2-small_2Says David Whiteside, a director at Sense: “This is a business built on passion and a genuine love for what they do, which is something we can relate to. The recipe for Melbourne Moonshine has been passed down through one of the owners’ family for generations – what they have is a spirit of exceptionally high quality that deserves respect.”

melbourne-moonshine-3-small_3To help people explore the spirit, Melbourne Moonshine collaborated with Black Pearl’s mixologist Nathan Beasley to develop a signature series of cocktails. You can check out the recipes (and mugshots of the drinks) at the Melbourne Moonshine’s microsite, also created by Sense.
