It’s been nearly two hundred years since Hugh Moon, Utah’s First Known Distiller of Record, pondered making “strong drink” (whiskey) for his fellow Mormon settlers, stirred by a passage from The Covenants:
“Wherefore a commandment I give unto you that you will not purchase wine neither strong drink from your enemies, you shall only partake in that which is made new among you.”
With blessing from Brigham Young, Hugh built his distillery on land with an abundance of grain and pristine water from an artesian well. There, he made a distillate of such high regard he would sell all that he could make to the “Good Satisfaction” of all who drank it.
Hugh Moon's White Whiskey and Moon's Best Rye Whiskey are still made on that very same land, and it is our hope that you enjoy these whiskeys to your “Good Satisfaction” too.
