New York-based spirits developer Manhattan Moonshine Co has launched its first product, a namesake, un-aged white whiskey made from oats, rye and spelt.

Manhattan Moonshine is intended to be a premium “moonshine” whiskey, with marketing and packaging that attempts to capture the Prohibition era in the US. Manhattan Moonshine Co, which was founded last year, developed the liquid in partnership with Spirits Consulting Group.

Initially, it will only be avaliable in the New York market.

In 2012, Beam Inc launched Jim Beam Jacob's Ghost, a white whiskey named after Jim Beam's founding distiller, Jacob Beam.
