Apple Pie "Moonshine" Recipe

Apple Pie Moonshine Recipe

Apple Pie "Moonshine" Ingredients

To make a killer batch of "apple pie moonshine" you're going to need more than just cinnamon. We think it's best when it also includes allspice, cloves, orange peel, ginger, vanilla bean, and even a bit of black and pink peppercorn to give it some spice. Simply put, adding some cinnamon and apple juice to a batch of white whiskey will make a good batch of apple pie shine, but it won't make a great batch

Apple Pie "Moonshine" Spice Mix

Here at Clawhammer, we take pride in knowing our way around whiskey. Apple pie shine is one of our favorites and we've made many a batch. In fact, when we were in the process of developing our Apple Pie Moonshine Spice Mix, we tried dozens of variations on this American classic. We drank ourselves silly testing the stuff out, then enlisted the help of friends and family. They happily guzzled down jar after jar to aid in our pursuit of excellence. After months of testing, we finally made "the perfect batch." 

How to Make "The Perfect Batch"

To make a batch of "apple pie moonshine" with our spice mix, simply combine the tin of spices with 4 cans of apple juice concentrate and 6 cups of 80 proof white whiskey (any kind will do but corn whiskey works best). Leave it sit for 24-48 hours then strain. Store in quart jars and refrigerate until you're ready to drink it. That's it!

    1 gl apple juice,1 gl spice apple cider,1. cup of White sugar,1 cup of brown sugar
    1.75 liter of ever clear,.75 liter vanilla vodka. 6-8 stick Cin Sticks and vanilla stick. Pour Apple juice and cider in a large stock pot and start heating it up, keep it covered as it warms add the both cups of sugar, stir until the all sugar is completely dissolved. Add cin Sticks and vanilla then cover. Allow it to come to a low roll boil, allow to low roll boil for a few minutes 2-5, shut off heat and let it cool a few minutes then add ever clear and vodka, theN cover to simmer and cool down. I boil my jars and lids then add the apple pie while the jars and lids are warm to get a good seal and preserve taste. Allow to cool at room temp and give it a couple weeks for more flavor.

  • Ok so here is what I do for my recipe. Which I got from another post on this site about how to make Apple Pie. 32 oz of Hooch, 3 Cans of Concentrate (do not add any water), 1 cup of Brown Sugar, 6-8 Cinnamon Sticks, one vanilla bean split down the middle. Add everything except to shine to your crockpot and steep overnight. Remove and cool and then mix in the Shine. I strain mine through a coffee filter that I line a funnel with and pour right into jars. Hope this helps!!!

  • Guys, do the math…
    4 12 oz cans of apple juice concentrate is 48 oz.
    6 cups of shine is 48 oz.
    that’s 96 oz or 3 quarts – which is exactly what the recipe says it will make.

    Since this is my first post on here, let me say that I am so very glad to have found this site. The still took some effort to put together but it works like a charm! I sent an e-mail with questions on the day after I ordered and emmet got back to me the very next day. Great product, great service…great company to do business with!

  • Has anyone answered the question about diluting the concentrate like the apple juice can reads or not? Plus what do you use to strain the finished product? Thank-you in Advance John

  • So I see everyone is asking the same question on the apple juice concentrate, so what size apple juice cans and is it mixed with water as per instructions of the can. I have made my own version of apple Pie Moon Shine using everclear 150 proof (750 ml) and 1 bottle of Vanilla Vodka and 1 gal of apple juice and it makes 11 pint jars but I would like to try and use your spices with this recipe. What is your opinion, does it seem that the alcohol volume is not as much as you use.

  • Made my first batch of apple pie using your spice kit and ever clear and followed the instructions. Wow! did I say wow? The spices really adds a bunch to the drink and brings it over the top. I could go on and on as to how good it blends, smooths, and creates the subtle taste I like but I won’t. I Just want all to know this kit is awesome.

  • do I mix the apple concentrate into apple juice ? thank you

    Posted by ken mckinney on May 21, 2015
  • I assume, when you talk about using 4 cans of apple juice concentrate, that it is mixed in accordance to the label instructions?

  • When you said a batch. How much exacly?
    Thank you for your time

  • A quick question about your recipe. It says on your site for the apple pie moonshine "a 1750ml bottle of 80 proof vodka, is this one 750ml bottle. Or a 1750 ml bottle. 1.75 liters.

  • Could you do a blueberry mash recipe for 5 gallon

    Posted by Brian on February 09, 2015
  • I ordered one tin of Apple Pie to try. Just came back to get ten more. Followed the instructions using 151 everclear and a 1/4 cup rye whiskey. I added everything into one jug. 27 hours later everything strained into quart jugs and chilled. After dinner we poured over ice for dessert and pow, it beats anything we have tasted to date. I think the only thing you could do to make this any better is to make your own corn whiskey before adding the Apple Pie ingredients. Cheers. Thank you clawhammer supply for making it so simple.
