Some random thoughts:


I’ve of two minds of Clown having his own branded moonshine.

On the one hand, the dude looks like he should be making outlawed items in the middle of the woods.

On the other hand, given that he hits a keg with a bat for a living, shouldn’t he really be making beer?

On the other other hand, maybe the fact that he hits a keg with a bat for a living is a sign that he actually hates beer (although if that’s the case, I’d wonder where all the beer in the keg went… I hope he didn’t waste it).


I just checked one of the many (many, many, many) jars of moonshine in my very (very, very, very) extensive supply of hard liquor, and they’re generally 50% ABV and 100 proof, despite being considerably cheaper than this box set. I know that’s not the biggest deal in the world, and you’re paying for the moonshine and the whiskey and the pretty box which will now be forever used to hold weed/jewelry/loose change/whatever. But if you’re like me, your choice of drink any given moment is generally determined by what will get you drunkest fastest and cheapest. So. This isn’t that.


“Awarded Best Celebrity Whiskey by Forbes” is perhaps the bougiest assemblage of words in the history of the English language.

Anyway you can buy your box set here.
