Moonshine is a term used for high-proof distilled spirits that are generally produced illicitly.


The word "moonshine" for the spirit or "moonrunners" for the distillers and distributors of moonshine are believed to be derived from the term "moonrakers" used for early smugglers and the clandestine nature of the operations of illegal distillers who produced and distributed those spirits.

The title of the first movie, Moonrunners, refers to the illegal activities of the Haggs which are later continued in the TV series and movies by the Duke Family.
