For years he defied the law. Now he’s defied the odds. Tim Smith’s Climax Moonshine is now legit.



After decades, Tim Smith is bringing his real moonshine out of the woods and into the world.

There are a lot of pretenders out there. But Tim Smith’s moonshine is the real thing. Pot-distilled from an original family recipe using corn, rye and barley malt mash. And Tim’s Grape and Peach Lightning are made the hard way, distilled from real fruit instead of adding fruit later like others do. Tim makes it just like he always has in the woods of Climax, VA – the real moonshine way.





The Original Recipe is distilled from corn, rye and barley malt. Clean and natural tasting with a subtle sweetness and bold defiance.

This ain’t no fruit-filled jar of juice. It’s distilled from real grapes for a delicious aroma and subtle hints of Concord grape.
79 proof.


No shortcuts here. Tim’s delicious peach recipe is distilled from real peaches. It’s like biting into a fresh peach.
