About Saint Luna Charcoal Filtered Moonshine
David Suk was searching for his next entrepreneurial venture and got the idea of creating a modern, premium take on moonshine at a Holiday family get-together. "It dawned on me. If I could make a craft moonshine, something truly elevated and cocktail friendly, I could challenge what people typically think of moonshine and ultimately create a new category of moonshine. I was after an elevated experience with moonshine, which wasn’t something you typically thought of. It would be the first, ultra-premium moonshine," says Suk of his decision.
It was a year or two later that Suk met Scott Smith, a chemist and moonshine maker. They drove to Smith's friend's farm in rural Georgia where they had a still. "What we first pull off the still is about 180 proof and it is smooth, layered with exceptional flavor and I instantly thought, wow this is it. looked at Scott and said, hey, do you want to build a modern moonshine brand?" Thus they partnered up to create Saint Luna, an elegant, sophisticated, yet approachable moonshine utilizing Smith's recipe ― one that he had been perfecting for 15 years.
Together they teamed up with Southern Star Distilling Co. in Statesville, NC to start producing the spirit. Two years later they launched Saint Luna Charcoal Filtered Moonshine, which started bringing in awards rapidly. "We’re a curious contradiction, a premium moonshine, both complex and even, handcrafted in small batches from locally sourced molasses and rye, with the purest of water, then charcoal filtered to remove any impurities," says Suk of the final product. Equally at home with various cocktails and a perfectly smooth sipper, they knew they had something, versatile, complex, and special on their hands.
