Something about SweetShine!

A Sweet Spin on Moonshine


With our sweet spin on moonshine, we’ve polished up an old tradition, creating world-class liqueurs that range in proof from 8° to 70°. We went back, way back, to the way the old timer’s used to do it. They would flavor their moonshine with real fruit and sugar for a smoother, more palatable ‘shine. Bloomery’s all natural SweetShines® are made the way the old timer’s used to do it, by hand, with 190-proof corn likker, pure cane sugar and farm fresh ingredients. So shake it up, play, imbibe, and enjoy our locally loved, stylishly sexy, but never stuffy, libations that eradicate expectations.

All Natural, Farm-Fresh, and Hand-crafted

Garden to Glass


Our family of flavors are crafted by hand, naturally. We grow lemons, yes, lemons in West by God Virginia! And Hawaiian ginger, raspberries, black walnuts and pumpkins. All of the local fruits, roots and nuts from our farm, and neighboring farms, are hand-selected by our master macerator. Farm to table. Garden to glass.
From the hand-zesting of every single lemon to hand-writing every bottle's proof on the label. We carefully handle every bottle to ensure only the best, from our hands to our yours. Not only is our SweetShine carefully hand-crafted, it's beautifully focused—
and stark ravingly good!
