Junior Johnson’s Midnight Moon • While your great granddaddy was firing up a pipe, Junior Johnson’s was firing up a copper still.

Junior Johnson’s Midnight Moon Natural Fruit • Midnight Moon Apple Pie, Cherry, Strawberry, Blueberry & Cranberry spirits each begin with the handcrafted, ultra-smooth Midnight Moon recipe. Real fruit and Midnight Moon are then placed in mason jars by hand, just like moonshiners have done for generations. Apple Pie, Cherry, Strawberry, Blueberry & Cranberry age in the jar for several weeks, to ensure each bottle reaches the peak of all-natural fruit flavor before it leaves the distillery.
