Tim Smith, best known for his starring role in Discovery Channel’s “Moonshiners” and for his critically acclaimed Tim Smith’s Original Climax Moonshine, is a third generation moonshiner who’s managed to keep his family’s 100-year-old moonshine recipe a secret while successfully turning it into a major national brand.



According to the Huffington Post’s Taste Test, Tim’s Smith’s Original Climax Moonshine is “the best moonshine being made anywhere.”

Climax Spirits 

As America’s Most Wanted Moonshiner, Tim Smith is pursued by lawmen and drinkers alike. Tim pot-distills his whiskey the same way his family has for generations. It’s what makes Tim Smith’s Climax Spirits one of the best in the world.

Southern Reserve 

Heritage from Tim's moonshining days, and where he was born and raised in Climax VA, has led him down the path to introduce his very own original southern style whiskey flavors.

Tim Smith Southern Reserve 

The idea came from my double rye recipe, I have been perfecting, and my partners at Two Trees Distilling made the decision to share our styles with the world.  Tim Smith Southern Reserve will be introduced throughout season 8 of Discovery Channels Moonshiner show along with my new series on the Discovery Channel “Whiskey Business.”​
