Award-winning moonshine distillers Sugarlands Distilling Company has announced that they have added Rye Apple Moonshine to their lineup of offerings.

Rye Apple Moonshine is an 80 proof, apple-infused rye moonshine, created from a collaboration between Sugarlands Distilling Company and distillers Mark Ramsey and Digger Manes, who gained national prominence on the Discovery Channel show "Moonshiners."

Both Ramsey and Manes have a long history of distilling moonshine in East Tennessee, and together built "Big Ash," a 1,750-gallon still. The pair will join Jim Tom Hedrick, Mark Rogers, and Steven Ray Tickle as new members of Sugarlands' "Legends Series." All members of this team have made appearances on "Moonshiners."

"We are thrilled to bring Rye Apple to Sugarlands Shine fans everywhere," said Ramsey. "We worked hard perfecting this recipe and we think it will be an instant hit with people across the country."

Rye Apple joins 11 other varieties of moonshine available from Sugarlands Distilling Company. It is now available, along with the other varieties, for tasting and purchase at the distillery in downtown Gatlinburg. Rye Apple will be available at East Tennessee liquor stores in early 2016.

Sugarlands Distilling Company has won 20 awards internationally since distillation began in 2014.
