May 13 is National Apple Pie Day, which sounds like a great excuse to bake a pie! We also wanted to add a local twist to our pie, so we made it with Apple Pie Moonshine from Crystal Ridge Distillery in Hot Springs! Back in the Prohibition days, it was very easy for local residents to hide their moonshine stills in the woods. Officers even discovered one still hidden in a hollow log after following several drunk and staggering hogs to its location! Some of Hot Springs most “notable” characters made their fortunes during prohibition (tour The Gangster Museum of America while you’re here to learn more)! Crystal Ridge Distillery has brought their moonshine to Downtown Hot Springs, and is now open to the public for tours and tastings in their historic 1920’s building.
