Award-winning innovation that is the easiest way to make delicious beer and wine at home.
Moonshine Drinks is based in Nottingham and provides innovative home brewed alcoholic drinks which are currently sold direct to consumers, via the Moonshine website. In addition, through Lakeland stores and online, through Scotts of Stow, other national garden centres, and the QVC TV shopping channel.
How it works:
The “brew-bag” is pre-packed with extract to which the consumer adds water and a sachet of yeast, to make 25 pints of brewed product.
The bag acts as a single fermentation, maturation, storage and serving vessel for the brewed product. This makes brewing at home simple, easy and convenient which means that the consumer gets a better product for less effort than traditional home brewing methods.
Moonshine has now developed a range of white and red wines to add to it’s original range of ales. Additional rosé wine, cider and other drink varieties are poised to go into production once funding has been achieved.
The products are designed to give an alcohol by volume percentage, that is consistently 4.2% for the ales, 12% for the wines and 4.5% for the ciders.
The retail recommended price is £29.95 (including postage & packaging) when bought directly from the Moonshine website.
Three world class leading universities have all contributed their skills, knowledge and facilities in the development of the product: The University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University and Prospect IP, an innovation initiative led by DeMontfort University.
Moonshine will continue to benefit from their contribution as we continue our research and development programme.
