"Moonshiners"
Premieres Tuesday, November 14 at 9 PM ET/PT on Discovery
 
          Rise and ‘shine for the all-new season of MOONSHINERS. The battle continues! Moonshiners are back in the woods, fighting rival shiners, hiding from law enforcement and struggling against Mother Nature to keep their liquor flowing and business booming. For the past six seasons, Moonshiners has documented the intrepid few who are willing to venture into the backwoods, outsmart law enforcement and out produce upstart rivals in order to keep the tradition of artisanal heritage whiskey alive.
 
           This season, the moonshiners take us deep into the remote corners of Appalachia to witness outrageous feats of backwoods engineering that keep their illegal distilling operations hidden. It’s a world governed by centuries-old unwritten rules where six figure deals are made on a handshake and a moonshiner is only as good as his word. Gone are the days of rotgut hooch, today’s moonshiners are masters of innovation; always pushing the envelope of ingenuity to create the finest liquor money can buy.

        Veteran shiner Tim Smith continues to grow his legal distillery while trying to cement his legacy for the future Smith generation. But is Tim’s son, JT, ready to bear the weight of that legacy?  Meanwhile, Mark and Digger dive into the new season with an ambitious new triple pot still design and build. Mark Rogers and relative newcomer Mike plot an expansion that could run them dangerously close to Mark and Digger’s territory.
 
          Patti and David plan to undertake a massive marine-based distribution route into the Gulf of Mexico’s fishing, shipping and oil industries. While over in Kentucky, Chico and Sondra are at odds over the best way to maintain their success in the female-targeted moonshines and fruit brandies. Josh wants to go even bigger this year with a plan to distribute his grandfather’s recipe cherry bounce moonshine, but without big Chuck by his side, it won’t be easy. And Jeff and Lance are clawing their way back after their massive absinthe failure. Each moonshiner must rely on his wits to walk the razor’s edge—both visible to customers and hidden from the law in order to make it to the end of the season and hit the big payday.
