Frequently Asked Questions
The label says Shine, is it moonshine?
No. The label says shine because we named it that. Moonshine is any untaxed liquor produced without proper licensing. We have the licensing, and pay the tax. Why? because the prison system is a great deterrent.
Vodka is made from potatoes?
Vodka is made from potatoes and anything else that can be converted to sugar. Our Vodka is made from Cane Sugar. There are some great Vodkas made from potatoes but I Personally enjoy butter, sour cream, and scallions with my potatoes; Gravy when mashed. It just wasn’t very appealing to us after we shoved all of that in a bottle.
What is Dulcis Piscis?
That’s two fancy words we found in the Latin language that translate to Sweet Fish. Don’t worry not one fish was harmed in making this beverage. We didn’t even use fish to make this. It’s not that we are anti-fish, we aren’t. That’s such an awkward Stance to have considering there may be more of them than there are of us. We like the fishes, We are friend to the fishes and when they learn to read this will stand as a testament to that fact.

Do you believe any conspiracy theories?
Yes. I am a firm believer in one purposed by my father. Anytime you drive anywhere an underground closely guarded group of individuals radio ahead and have the slowest drivers possible pull out ahead of you. Each time you manage to overtake this driver another takes it’s place within a matter of minutes. It’s the only explanation. It’s held true for years. Doubt me on this? Take a look at the driver in front of you next time you need to get somewhere.
