Apple pie and rye


Still Fired Distillery in Annapolis Royal, N.S. bases its Granny Apple Pie Moonshine recipe on co-owner Owen Ritchie’s grandma’s signature apple pie recipe. A blend of unaged corn, whiskey, local fresh pressed apple cider (from Boates Farm) and spices are blended to create a smooth, easy-drinking moonshine.
