You may smirk at first, like we did, at the thought of moonshine cologne. But this isn’t some gag gift or homemade recipe cooked up from a still. This is the real deal.
Here’s how we would describe it: You’re a guy (or know a guy) that’s comfortable in his own skin and hates fads; who can’t stand sweet-smelling cologne and wouldn’t be caught dead wearing what those pouty-looking, oven-baked, GQ guys wear who roll around in the sand and look all mysterious. You need something that a real man wears. Hello Moonshine Cologne.
It has a woodsy aroma with hints of spice: including black pepper, tobacco, leather, gin, and even a little patchouli.
It comes in a 3.4 fl ounce/100 ml bottle, with burlap travel sack and wooden storage box. Cool.
Be bold, guys.
