Question: When was Moonshine first legalized in the U!.S!.!? !?
My sister asked me!. Her fourth grade history teacher apparently brought up the topic of when Moonshine was first legal in the U!.S!. She doesn't remember what her teacher said since it was over a year ago!. Can someone please tell me the answer!?


wow !. good question!! It says in wikipedia that Moonshine is still illegal in the U!.S!. legislation was introduced but failed to pass in November of 2001!.

Hope I helped you :)


Moonshine has never been legal in the United States!.
Moonshine is an illegal process of distilling corn mash in copper or steel tubing and condensing it into glass!.
It is not taxed which is why it is illegal!.
Certain distilleries manufacture Pure Grain Alcohol at 190 proof and call it "MoonShine" but it is just original proof grain neutral spirits as it comes out of the distillery before it is cut with water to lower the proof!.
Pure Grain has been manufactured since the end of Prohibition in 1933!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Moonshine is 100% ethanol alcohol!. It was never legal!.

Even to this day, in many parts of the south it is still be produced and is often mixed with many nasty chemicals like lead and paint thinner!.

The bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms is responsible for going after those who are bootleggers!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Moonshine is the term used to describe the unlawfully produced distillation of spirits !. Any alcohol that is not licensed , controlled and health regulated is moonshine !. So the answer is , it's never been legal with out a federal license !.Www@FoodAQ@Com
