Who Are The Moonshiners?

Focusing on a real-life topic evaluated closely through impeccable writing, The Moonshiners is a drama cum documentary on the life of the people who started producing illegal alcoholic beverages in the 1970s and still continue today. 

The show has aired for 12 seasons and a character born into the show itself is Josh Owen, the son of Jim Tom Hendrick (born on 28 August 1977). He is one of the central characters in the show today, along with his co-star Richard Landry. 

There has previously been a dispute between Magilla Entertainment (that produces the show) and the Virginia Department Of Alcoholic Beverage Control because the show brands itself as based on real events although the government claims any such activity in the area hasn’t taken place for decades.
