Product information "O'Donnell Moonshine Bitter Rose"

We have revived the disreputable drink of the past. Our O'Donnell Moonshine is handcrafted in Germany according to the old rules of the distilling art and made with natural ingredients. The original preserving jars "Mason Jars" come directly from the USA.

The bitter sweetness: O'Donnell Moonshine "Bitter Rose" - liqueur with 25% vol.
A blend of sour and bitter notes of grapefruit paired with slightly fruity rosehip notes. The "Bitter Rose" liqueur gets its strong red colour from black elderberry syrup. We only use the best ingredients for the production and of course no artificial flavours or colourings. The "Bitter Rose" does not contain any allergens that have to be labelled. The balanced acidity of the grapefruit immediately awakens memories of the sun and the south. Its dark red colour, the smell of citrus fruits and the sweetish bitter taste make the bitter rose a unique temptation. With its 25% vol. the "Bitter Rose" is suitable both pure and in many summer drinks.
All our creations are bottled in original American "Mason Jars", which we import directly from the USA. But of course the "Bitter Rose", like all our products, is also made in Germany according to the old rules of craftsmanship and distilling art. O'Donnell's long drink tip is: Pour 6cl "Bitter Rose" with tonic water and garnish with a slice of fresh grapefruit. More recipes can be found here on O'Donnell's recipe page.

MOONSHINE
Almost a hundred years ago, Prohibition (1919-1933) prevailed in the USA: the production and sale of alcohol was prohibited. An epoch of secrecy began. The farmers called Moonshine their black distilled liquor, which they filled into preserving jars ("Mason Jars") and then sold on to smugglers, the so-called "bootleggers". The preserving jars were a precautionary measure because they quickly made themselves suspicious of being black burners by buying bottles.

Prohibition

The nationwide alcohol ban had serious consequences for the USA - many people lost their jobs, and instead of looking for a new one, they continued their old jobs illegally, which meant enormous tax losses for the state. Corruption flourished, even police officers secretly worked in the alcohol business. The procurement, transport and sale of high-percentage goods were now in the hands of criminal gangs, to whom the state was virtually powerless.

South Side O'Donnell Gang

Our Moonshine is named after Edward "Spike" O'Donnell (1890-1962), leader of the South Side O'Donnell Gang, who fought bloody battles with their opponents, the Gang of Mafioso Johnny Torrio, during the Chicago Beer Wars of 1923.
The losing battles lasted two years, then the infamous Al Capone took over the business of the Torrios and with it the rule over the alcohol business. Edward "Spike" O'Donnell had little scruples when it came to fighting with other gangsters in Chicago for dominance in the alcohol black market, but he paid attention to quality and stuck to German-born producers. When he was seriously injured in a drive by in 1925, he retired from the smuggling business and left Chicago.
