HOUSE-DISTILLED MOONSHINE FROM THE UNDERGROUND AT THE MOB MUSEUM TO BE AVAILABLE AT NEVADA STORES, RESTAURANTS

 

 For the first time, The Underground at The Mob Museum will make its house-distilled, corn-mash original Moonshine available for off-premise sales in Nevada in collaboration with distributor Johnson Brothers. Lee’s Liquor is eager to carry the moonshine in both 750-mL and 50-mL quantities at all 19 of its stores beginning Friday, Oct. 18.

“Lee’s Discount Liquor, an icon of Las Vegas, as is The Mob Museum, is excited to partner with the Museum by now offering Moonshine to our Las Vegas and tourist clients. We are excited for the opportunity to help promote Las Vegas and its history,” said Kenny Lee president of Lee’s Discount Liquor.

Other retailers, bars and restaurants will be announced soon.

Made from a single ingredient – 100-percent yellow corn – The Mob Museum’s Moonshine uses no additional sugar in the distillation. This process prevents harsh flavors from developing, creating the highest-quality, smoothest spirit possible. Bottled at 50-percent ABV, the Moonshine carries distinctively appealing notes of buttery, sweet popcorn.

“With an in-house distillery, The Underground at The Mob Museum has a distinctive asset, allowing us to provide our visitors with literally a taste of Prohibition history,” said Jonathan Ullman, president and chief executive officer of The Mob Museum. “Our craft-made Moonshine has been extremely popular with guests visiting the Museum and we’re enthusiastic about being able to reach new and larger audiences through off-site sales. In fact, some of the 750-mL jars of our authentic Moonshine will come with a $5 voucher good toward Museum admission.”

“We are so proud to be appointed as official distributor of The Mob Museum Moonshine. The product is outstanding and it couldn’t be any more authentic since it is literally made in the distillery of the Museum in small, artisan batches,” said Gary Charmel, regional president of Johnson Brothers. “It is everything a craft spirit should be. We are delighted to be working with the Museum on this venture.”

The Museum’s Moonshine is crafted in The Underground in a custom-made artisan copper-pot still situated in the distillery. The system distills 100-percent corn-mash Moonshine, which is available at the speakeasy bar and for sale in The Underground.

Visitors looking to learn more about the distilling process and for an authentic 1920s experience should visit The Underground speakeasy. In addition to house-distilled moonshine, the elegant bar also serves house-brewed craft beer as well as tempting Prohibition-era inspired cocktails, seasonal blends of moonshine, wines by the glass and non-alcoholic drinks. The speakeasy offers food, happy hour and free live jazz.

FAST FACTS ABOUT THE MOB MUSEUM MOONSHINE

  • Since opening in April 2018, more than 1000 gallons of Moonshine have been distilled in The Underground.
  • The still can produce approximately 250 jars of 750-mL moonshine per week.
  • The Museum has sold more than 15,000 bottles.

About Chef Sam “Sammy D” DeMarco:
Working in restaurants since the age of 15, Chef Sam “Sammy D” DeMarco was part of the pioneer culinary school class at New York Institute of Technology in Long Island, N.Y. Sammy honed his skills as he moved through the ranks of innumerable NYC restaurant kitchens under prestigious and trendsetting chefs such as David Burke, Gray Kunz, Jean-Michel Diot, and Michelle Fitoussi among many others.

At the young age of 29, Sammy opened FIRST in 1994– aptly named not only because it was his first big venture but also having been located on 1st Avenue in New York City’s bustling East Village. Sammy became well-known as the “Chef to the Chefs” in the late ’90s at FIRST, a tradition that continued when the Chef reinvented FIRST in 2008 for FIRST Food & Bar in Las Vegas’s Palazzo Hotel. Prior to FIRST Food & Bar, Sammy launched Sam’s at Bellagio in partnership with Steve Wynn where he brought a new way to brunch to Las Vegas. He continued to cause some culinary waves with the opening of Rattlecan, a debaucherously fun burger-centric restaurant designed with the help of HGTV design star Antonio Ballatore. In 2014, Sammy starred alongside Hollywood Director Frank Coraci (The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy, Blended), in “Chow Masters” on the Travel Channel. The show played on Sammy’s love of travel and found the chef and director traveling across the U.S. to judge some of America’s off-the-map locations for some unique twists on those city favorites. With an urge to travel, Chef headed overseas with successful projects in Australia and Amsterdam before returning to Las Vegas, a city that has always held a special place in the chef’s heart.
