Making Moonshine Is legal In 5 States- Is New York One of Them?
Fun fact- As of 2023, only five American states can legally make their own homemade moonshine. So, is New York one of them?
Does New York have it's fair share of moonshiners with hidden cabins in the woods? Who knows. As for the five states that do allow making moonshine:
ALASKA: Legal to make for personal consumption only
ARIZONA: A permit is required to make your own moonshine
MASSACHUSETTS: Homemade moonshine is to be consumed only on your personal property
MISSOURI: A 200-gallon a year limit
NORTH DAKOTA: It is legal to make moonshine for personal use. However, only up to the federally amount of gallons. But since fed law prohibits making moonshine, they can make zero gallons…that makes no sense at all.
So sorry, New York moonshiners, if you’re making your own, you’re breaking the law. You can find different brands of moonshine in liquor dealer stores and try it that way. So once again, in New York, it is a misdemeanor to be in possession of moonshine or attempting to sell illegal spirits. It is a felony to manufacture moonshine. Keep that in mind.
Word of advice from the experts- If you’ve never tried it, start by drinking a small glass and see how it affects your body. It is not as dangerous to drink as it was in the early 1920s, but you still have to be cautious.
