Moonshine moves out of the hills and into storesSubmitted by meekandmild on Thu, 07/18/2013 - 20:05
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tim Smith, the clandestine star of Discovery's unexpected reality hit "Moonshiners," doesn't have anything against the growing legion of legal distillers who are plying their brands at your local liquor store.
He just doesn't want to drink their stuff.
"Mine is just a real smooth moonshine," Smith said. "That's the only way I can explain it. I've tasted some of the other brands trying to figure out what they're making and stuff like that. I'm not trying to put down nobody, don't get me wrong. Everybody's got their own business. But everybody I taste, that's about what I throw away."
