    Corn Liquor

    When I was in my favorite liquor store yesterday I noticed a jar of clear liquor marked as Corn Whiskey. The label said it was less than 90 days old. I don't remember the brand name right now but it was in a container that resembled a fruit jar complete with the screw on cap. It was priced at about $15.00. Has anyone seen or tasted anything similar? I was tempted to purchase it but there was a bottle of Rare Breed that won out.

    Re: Corn Liquor

    In PA we sell something called "Georgia Moon Corn Whiskey." It comes in a mason jar and sells for about $10. Never tried it, probably never will...unless I find a 10-spot laying in the street and all our bourbons, scotches and Irish whiskies mysteriously disappear.

    When I tried it, the corners of my mouth kept jerking towards my ears in a Joker-Like grimace. Not the normal reaction for whiskey drinking.
    "Gag" gift may be the appropriate name.
    I guess I don't appreciate it.

    That sounds like "Georgia Moon". I've never been able to bring myself to buy any.

    Georgia Moon is a Heaven Hill product...It's available in 80 proof and 100 proof...

    More of a novelty gift, than used for drinking...There would be "no contest" in my decision to by Bourbon or Moonshine...

    Bourbon , hands down...

    There's some genuine humor in the fact that the label guarantees that it is LESS than 90 days old. (Aged in that very jar, no doubt.) Definitely a gag gift.

    Re: Corn Liquor

    I was surprised at how many of these little buggers sold during the holidays. Folks really did grab them as a "gag gift" but with the intent of somebody getting drunk. Amazing how many asked me, "Is this good?" My reply, "It ain't as good as what I've had sittin' on a front porch down South, but it'll do."

    I've seen Georgia Moon turn up at a few bachelor parties, but I've only
    seen the victim take two or three sips. The jar, still mostly full,
    does make a great memento to help remember the night, though.

    Re: Corn Liquor

    I have a jar of Georgia Moon corn whiskey. I have it on my premium bourbon shelf, as a joke. It tastes like corn, believe it or not! To think that in the 1700's and 1800's this is what whiskey tasted like! No wonder bourbon became such a hit in New Orleans! That new Bourbon, KY stuff was actually drinkable!

    Re: Corn Liquor

    Heaven Hill makes a product I believe is called Mellow Corn (I am not looking at the bottle but I have one). I actually think it is really tasty. I kind of like diluted white dog so naturally I'd like this. I've never bought a jar of Georgia Moon. -- Greg
