- L’Esprit de Courvoisier, a cognac made from brandies distilled between 1802 (yes, during the time of Napoleon Bonaparte!) and 1931, sells for $350 per shot (1 and 1/2 ounces). Cognac is a brandy made from white wine grapes grown in the small region of Cognac in southwestern France.
- To show that their moonshine has high alcohol content and is also free of potentially deadly contaminants commonly found in the illegal product, moonshiners sometimes pour some of theirs on a stump and light it. A clear blue flame indicates high-proof. Any other colors within the flame indicates that it is contaminated. Why do people buy unpleasant tasting and potentially deadly moonshine? Because legally produced distilled spirits products are very heavily taxed, thus dramatically increasing their cost to the consumer.
