Founded 2014 in Berlin, now opening our London office!
Our Moonshine is produced with traditional techniques, only using natural ingredients.
After 3 years in business O'Donnell Moonshine has grown from the living room of the founders, August and Philip, to a small company, employing a total of 9 people at their headquarters in Berlin. O'Donnell Moonshine has been selling to many independent wine and spirits retailers all over Germany. Following the trend of craft breweries and distilleries the brand quickly made a name for itself by producing pleasing, creative and sweet flavoured liqueurs.
Moonshine refers to alcohol produced illegally during the American prohibition (1919-1933). Farmers all over the country used to produce and then fill Moonshine into jars to be sold in the cities all across the US. Symbolic of this past are the traditional “Mason jars“ which were used as containers for Moonshine. O'Donnell Moonshine is also bottled in original American Mason jars. They are not only a reminder of the past, but a symbol for the simplicity and purity of its content. The quality of our ingredients and the craftsmanship of our drink always come first.
Namesack for our Moonshine is the South Side O'Donnell Gang. They became famous during the Chicago Beer Wars of 1923. Edward “Spike” O'Donnell, the gang leader and adversary of Al Capone, survived this era unharmed.
O'Donnell Moonshine is available in four flavours. “Original” O'Donnell Moonshine is a Barrelaged wheat spirit with 38 % vol. “Bitter Rose“, a fresh mix of grapefruit, rose hip and elderberry. To be drunk neat or with tonic, it's the perfect summer drink. “Roasted Apple” is a blend of apple, lemon juice, cinnamon, vanilla and almond. Finally our newest creation “Tough Nut” (our best seller) is a hazelnut, nougat liqueur, refined with the flavours of creamy caramel and whiskey aroma.
