To mark 45 years on the family farm, Barker’s has created this unique addition to its range. Unlike traditional moonshine (also known as white lightning or hooch), Barker’s Mountain Moonshine is non-alcoholic so can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Served hot, it makes an ideal base for hot toddies and mulled wine – ideal for après ski and winter entertaining.
“Barker’s Mountain Moonshine celebrates where it all began in 1969 when my father, Anthony Barker, picked wild elderberries on his farm to create traditional country wines,” says Michael Barker.
“We’ve combined elderberries with spices, ginger, orange and two of our other favourite fruits – blackcurrants and blackberries – to make Mountain Moonshine.”
“My family loves a good mulled wine (a.k.a. gluhwein) so we will be enjoying a hot thermos with Mountain Moonshine on the ski fields this winter.”
Whether you’re hitting the ski slopes, watching the kids’ muddy football games or relaxing in front of the fire, Mountain Moonshine is the perfect accompaniment for winter.
The label suggests four easy recipes to mix your favourite hot toddy, with and without alcohol. “We hope Mountain Moonshine will help the moon shine a little warmer and brighter for you this winter!”
710ml bottles of Mountain Moonshine are available in the Fruit Syrups section of supermarkets nationwide for RRP $7.20. Also available in a bulk pack, Mountain Moonshine will be served in a number of ski resort bars this season.
