Who doesn’t like a shot of whiskey on a cold night? I love it. My granddad has been taking a shot of whiskey every night before bed for over 50 years and he swears it keeps him healthy.
I previously did a post on how to make watermelon moonshine and it went viral so I thought what else would people like to know how to make and it hit me… whiskey.
Whiskey is so expensive to buy and to be honest I do not want to spend that much money on a drink.
To make it yourself you could easily only pay about 5 bucks a liter. That is ridiculously cheap. Obviously, it won’t taste like the $50 bottle, but it will be whiskey nevertheless.
I didn’t realize how fairly easy it is to make homemade whiskey. The process only takes a few hours.
To get the best flavor and alcohol content I would recommend leaving for a few months, if not years.
Warning! It is illegal to distill drinking alcohol in many countries, including the US. According to the TTB, US Federal law strictly prohibits individuals from producing distilled spirits at home, so only use this recipe for reference purposes.
Unless, of course, it is the end of the world as we know it and the Federal government is not functioning…
This is a great skill to know and master for a SHTF situation as alcohol could be used for barter; and naturally, entertainment. 🙂
