Gingerbread Martini featuring Onyx Moonshine

Not Just For Hillbillies Anymore

Moonshine you say?  Yep, and it’s not Prohibition all over again either!  Onyx Moonshine is a delightfully smooth premium spirit distilled right here in Connecticut by Onyx Spirits CompanyMade by hand, in small batches at in their Manchester, CT distillery, Onyx was named 2012 Best Microdistillery in New England by Yankee Magazine and is also the Official Spirit of the 2012 Grammy Awards.  Not bad for a couple local boys!

Now you know how I am; I’m never satisfied with the status quo so I use Onyx in place of vodka for a subtle twist on my tried and true martinis.
